I have a scanner, no codes related to this. Have you watched/listened to the video? The fan cycles up and down really fast (1s/5s), abnormal it seems? And the high pitched squeal is painfully loud, if you can hear it. My kids complain, "what's that noise Dad?"

It all *seems* to be engine RPM related. There is obviously fan cooling at lower RPMs, but the fan is spinning faster when I downshift.
