The squeek is probally the belt, when a diesel shuts off it stops spining instantly causing all the belt driven stuff wanting to keep turning unlike a gas engine that will make a few turns after you shut it off. THey all make this sound so not to worry!

its a belt... when a diesel engine stops, it actually rolls backwards and then again forwards all in about 2 seconds. What is happening during this time when the belt squeaks, due to the extremely high compression ratios in diesels and a compressed ignition instead of a spark, when the diesel shuts off it rolls back and fourth to equalize the compression on the cylinders. its no big deal at all and all diesel will do it...
