odd noise at startup

I have only owned the truck for a couple weeks. Still learning whats normal. A couple times I have started it up and heard a strange noise. Sounds like its coming from the exhaust. To me it sounds like a bad bearing, not a crank or cam bearing.

noise, anybody know what this sound is?

There is little chance for someone here to tell you what your problem is, unless you either get more specific or post a video of the noise. I'm not trying to sound like a jerk here. The FTE forums are full of people eager to help, but you have given us very little to work with.

my first guess would be the turbo, but that is a shot in the dark to say the least

Is the truck DPF deleted?
year? Mileage?
popping sound? Whooshing sound? Knocking sound? Scraping sound? Grinding/squealing sound? Etc...

posting a video of the noise would be very helpful. The easiest way is to post it on YouTube and copy the link here.

that sound is not normal.

This is a used truck.

I would start with checking the clutch fan.....but it sounds turbo related to me.

What year and miles are on the truck?

It kinda has the whine of a hydraulic pump. How’s the power steering fluid? Any visible leaks? Does the power steering fluid smell burnt?

Yes, 2013 model
Since the noise seems to resonate from the exhaust I was thinking turbo as well. Hoping for a cheaper answer. Will check the fan clutch.
