I am new to these cars and need some help diagnosing a noise my engine is making during idle. I want to fix the issue but don't know what course of action is needed, my engine is making a squeaking sound that increases with rpm. The power steering belt squeals on start up but stops after a little bit

Has it always done this?
Did you try it without the accessory belts?
What have you looked at already?
Does it quit?
Does it change with clutch in?

Please fill out a profile so we know a little about the car.

Left or right side? Hard to tell in the vid but seems to be louder on the right. Does the noise change when you press the clutch and engage into gear?

Slave cylinder is gone so i cant press clutch or engage into gear and i think its louder from transmission side could it be that the clutch isnt fully engaged causing it to make that noise

I agree. It sounds like the clutch disk is staying somewhat engaged. I hear that rubbing sound. You can also hear it synchronized with the pulse of the engine. I hope that makes since.
I was thinking same thing i mainly posted because im new to this platform and wasnt sure if it was something super obvious or not or if it was a 25 year old car quirk but i think ur right
