2012 640i convertible - Engine Squealing

Want to see if anyone has seen/heard of this issue.

I'm getting a squealing sound from my engine when the auto cutoff is on and I come to a stop. Took it to the dealer and they replaced my lower gasket and it didnt really solve it.

What I did was just drive the car with the engine cutoff turned off which I normally do.

Yesterday though I got the squealing sound with it off and now I'm worried it could be worse now.

Anyone know if any good mechanics in Long Beach or LA area that can help or if you were able to fix it.

Was able to record it making the sound.

That sounds like idler pulley or water pump. Did you check the belt?

@Havy thanks. I'll check that out as well. Took it to the dealership and they suspect a valve cover gasket. But not ruling out what you brought up.
