1987 944S Belt noise on start up

Engine

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944 S; Year: 1987; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 150,000;

Upon start up there is loud (really loud) screech.After about 10 seconds it stops. My local mechanic (excellent) says the belt is self tensioning. Problem is intermittant. Is there a steel belt under the valve cover on the S? Also what should be done to cure it?
