Last night I was just out for a drive down the highway and I went to turn off that highway onto another and I decided I haven't done a burnout in a while so I gave it a shot and shortly after that when I got my truck up to speed at anywhere around 80km/h to 100km/h (highway speed) it started to make a high pitch squeal.

It's loud enough that I can't tell if its coming from the front or rear end of the truck.

The squeal goes away when I accelerate or decelerate. Its only there when I keep a steady speed. My truck has about 42,000 kms on it so it is not that old at all.

Can anybody tell me what the source of the squeal might be?

  • You may want to check your driveline, but a nondescript squeal is hard to diagnose over the internet. If you have any other information, it would be of great assistance. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Feb 3 '16 at 21:24
  • Also check to see if it does this while just Erving the motor in park or neutral.... Help to narrow down if motor or drive component – Dee Feb 4 '16 at 2:32
  • it doesn't do it in park or neutral when i rev it. but ill try driving down the highway and putting it in neutral and see if it does anything as soon as i can – user14813 Feb 4 '16 at 3:49
  • Did you run your experiment. – DucatiKiller Feb 12 '16 at 8:00
  • Voting to close as too broad - OP said the noise went away so there's no way to continue diagnosing the problem. – MooseLucifer Aug 8 '16 at 16:19
