F150 whinning noise in cold weather

My F150 makes an occasional whinning noise in cold weather. It gets louder or quits by increasing or decreasing RPM. Doesn’t matter if radiio or climate control is on or off. In warm weather it doesn’t make the noise.

Is This One Of Those Generic F-150s Or Does It Have A Model-Year ?


If it whines in park a piece of heater hose used like a stethoscope can help pinpoint the source of the noise.

I haven’t noticed it in park only driving and it stops when you speed up or slow down.
