Squeal, Not Belts, At Cold Start. 2006 Nissan Murano.

I have been experiencing a loud squeal at cold start. My car is a 2006 Nissan Murano SL AWD 155,000 miles. The noise only happens at cold start. I have replaced all the belts, tightened up the belt tensioner but now it doesn't sound like a belt at all. To me it sounds more like a bearing. Also I have noticed that when i am driving on the highway at 60mph and accelerate fast to pass someone there is a whining sound at high rpms, not sure if the two are related. This car has a timing chain so I have never replaced it. I attached the sound to this post, you can hear it right before the engine gets loud. I can email the file if any one would be kind enough to listen to it. Thanks in advance. Any thoughts???
