High pitch squealing at top of Fancy Gap
Climbing to Fancy Gap WV this trip (I-77 heading north to the gap) we had a strange noise.
Near the top of the climb I started to get a high pitched squeal coming, ( I think) from the engine compartment. I backed off the gas and it let up for a moment but started again. It stopped after cresting the mountain. Climbing hills later with steep climbs, and engine in a low gear roaring away, we got no squeal. It only happens at higher altitude.
We have 2011, 22,000 chassis with the Triton V-10.
Anyone else experience this? It sounds all the world like a bearing but I'm starting to think it might be a small leak in the air box or manifold (leaning this way mostly because it never happens at lower altitudes).
Gary, Cindy, Reacher (Maine Coon), and Vivian (in spirit only now).
Retired: July 31st, 2013 and loving it.
