Loud metal squeel

I was bringing home my daughter and her friends from the movies doing about 35 mph, and the truck started making a metal on metal squeel, I couldn't tell where it came from so I slowed down immediately, the squeel continued. I locked in 4x4 auto and reved it some to check the boost pressure, still there, and then the squeel stopped. Wasn't any more than 30 seconds long, and I continued to drive checking gauges, everything looked fine. It didn't come back as of yet. I am hoping maybe a rock got in the break as I live on gravel . But are there any problem areas I need to check to be safe? Turbos? Bearings? I checked the turbo fin when I installed the intake, and it have maybe a mm or two of play but not much, boost pressures looked fine. Egr Is still on but disabled with mini Maxx. Help?!

After watching a few turbo squeel videos on YouTube, I think that's the culprit. What now? Replace/ rebuild? How to check?

Could be fuel cooler pump. Check the fluid level and top off as needed.

I am losing a decent amount of coolant somewhere, drove about 10 miles and lost around a 3/4" out of the degas bottle from when I filled it up before leaving. I am not seeing anything leaking down creating a puddle, nor am I seeing any in the oil. I did see a front oil pan gasket leak, although minimal. I will need to be getting it fixed. So.. I have had a loud metal on metal sounding squeal, losing coolant, but not getting hot yet. I am running the Mini Maxx, 5" DP back pipe, S&B intake. Any ideas of areas to check for coolant leaking or seeping? I don't know these engines all that well.

Where is the fuel cooler pump located? Would it display some form of fluid leaking?

I assume there are hose connections? I looked at a photo of the part on Tascas website, looks like two small lines connecting. Would it be leaking from those joints, or are they known to leak from the actual housing? Looks like a smaller water pump...but plastic.

The fuel cooler cooling system is a separate system from main engine cooling. Its the small tank with sight glass to the rear on the LH side with the small pressure cap. If you are losing coolant from the main Degas tank then the leak doesn't involve the fuel cooling. Possibly the squeal was the water pump bearing & the seal is now leaking?. check for leakage around the front of engine.

What about my EGR? Will there be any indication as to whether it is leaking or not? I haven't installed my kit yet.
