Toyota Repair/Brake squeaking noise

Thanks. I am the poster of the question. I wanted to rate you but I did not receive an e-mail as my yahoo account has had some problems; it is now corrected. Some additional information. My 2002 es300 now has 144k miles, bought at just under 120k miles. The squeak has been intermittent for only about a month. I hear it when I am accelerating or coasting, not when braking but as soon as I release the brake, I hear it, seems more prevalent in warmer weather. Pads and rotors done about 2 months ago at Mavis. Not a major issue but an annoying one that I'd like to get taken care of if possible. Thanks.

As I said previously, I wanted to rate you but I did not receive the opportunity via email, and I don't know how except to reply via the "add to an answer" section. I wish to thank you and give you all "10's" for your prompt and knowledgeable answer. Like I mentioned in my last posting, car has 144k, plugs replaced at 120K miles. Pads and rotors to brakes done by Mavis Tire.
