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...
