When driving my car makes a squeaking sound even when my foot is not on the gas, what could be the problem

My car has 84000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Jason. In most cases, when you hear a squeaking noise, it’s caused by a component that is loose or worn out. Most common sources include a serpentine belt or pulley that is loose or worn out. To correctly diagnose the root source of this problem, you might want to have a professional mechanic complete an onsite inspection.
