High Pitch squeeling and now sputtering....

Hey ... New to this forum and just bought my first PSD .... i have owned the truck for a week and having problems already. Seeing if anyone could help me out at all...
Just bought an 08' F250 CC .. FX4 .. 192,000 miles.
When I bought the truck the dealer said that it had a small exhaust leak on flex pipe... No biggie.
But This weekend I washed the truck and after letting the truck sit for a bit I started the truck and instantly a high pitch squeal that can be heard anywhere within a block of the truck. took it to a couple small town truck shops and first place said blown Turbo... didnt like the diagnosis and went to the second.. he said its either a belt or tensioner... fine and dandy .. limped the truck back 125 miles to my house and just before i got there i stepped on it to pass a car... squealing wasnt as bad but now i can smell diesel and the truck is sputtering ... anyone have any ideas? Not too fluent on Diesels just yet and dont want to spend $1500-2K right off the bat .... Thanks!

Yep I sure do .... I talked to guy before me and showed me all the reciepts and work orders ... he owns a bar here in Iowa and also owns a bunch of race horses as well .. Hauled Horses from Iowa to Florida a bunch .. obviously but took immaculate care of this truck.... he upgraded to a F450 dually... Before I bought the truck took it to two different dealers and a body shop just to make sure...

Congratulations on the truck! I am not sure what's wrong with yours, but my truck likes to squeal sometimes badly when I start it in the summer heat. Maybe a pulley or tensioner

Not trying to get off topic, but I am sure many of us would like to know what all has been repaired on your truck in 192,000 miles. Haven't seen many high mileage 6.4's around the forum yet

Thanks ! Whatever the problem is it will be fixed and ill forget all about it as I've wanted the new style truck since I first saw them on the lot! haha If it is just a Pulley or something like that then no biggie.. will keep everyone updated as well...
As for the past repairs... 3 radiators .... 1 Fuel pump ... 1 Intercooler due to road debris.... 1 Right front Hub . . . At work right now ... but when I get home I will double check but pretty sure that is it so far.... Everything else just regular maintenance...

Damn, thats some miles. I'm impressed. And Welcome to the Org. First thought was pulley/tensioner but if its sputtering that would make me nervous. Curious, what a 6.4 with that mileage sold for if i'm not to nosy asking.
