engine chirp

my engine makes a chirp sound at idle and gets faster if i rev the car. i searched about it and found things suggesting its the plugs not torqued down enough or something about a crank case seal. i also read to pull the dipstick and it stops, but in my case it seemed to get louder. any ideas? thanks guys.

Bad belt or idler pulley.
Your second description could be a slipping belt on the alternator.

If if you turn on the high beam headlights does this increase the prevalence of the chirping?
Good man.
