Anyone else ever experienced this---

The I5 in my 90 makes a sort of squealing sound, almost like a v-belt 
slipping.  The noise seems to be coming from the general area of the 
upper intake manifold/cam cover.  It's present for about 5 minutes 
or so after cold start-up...

Could this be a worn cam bearing?  Any input will be appreciated.
My CoupeQ is making exactly the same noise....timing belt just
replaced....belts changed 10Kmi ago....could be that a/c clutch going again!!
