Have a medium to high pitch whine in my engine compartment.
It is directly associated with RPMS.
It does it in idle and gets louder as you accelerate. Has been going on for 70,000 miles.
Many people have looked at and could not diagnose.
As far as the performace of the truck, i tow trailers with it regularly and have no problems.
Any ideas???????
