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.

"Chirping" when it come to engines is usually 1 of 2 things. Slightly blown head gasket(EZ to diagnose with CCP test) OR a bearing going out! I'd guess he second and with it getting loader from the CRANK dipstick, I'd say crank bearing.

Drain your oil into a clean container, then slowly pour the oil into another clean container. If you see a metallic shimmer to the oil you're screwed.
Dang man! You jump right to amputating the foot for a hangnail! Start with the nice and easy serpentine belt (or whatever), then go up the ladder to the big stuff.
