    2016 Tundra 5.7 - Whines as in this video link ONLY when air is cold - It still whines on and off even after engine is warmed up - It has been doing this every winter for 3 years without getting better or worse - Replaced the fan clutch with no result - Thought maybe secondary air injection but the noise seems to be coming from the center of the engine not the passenger wheel well where that is. Any idea? Toyota service has not been able to pinpoint issue.

    Power steering pump? I had a pump in my Honda that made that noise, only in winter. Does change when you turn the wheel?

    It does not change when I turn the wheel but I am going to test that further to double check today. Oddly, it sometimes does it while driving in cold weather (engine fully warmed up) down a hill with my foot OFF the accelerator. Thank you for your help.

    Mine does the same exact thing. Only when it gets around 30 degrees or lower. And only until the truck gets warm.
    I always thought it was the SAI.

    Since its super white, it's probably the sound of many panties dropping.;)

    Does yours sound like it is from the center of the engine area like mine? I think the secondary air inj is located in the passenger wheel well area so that is why the Toyota dealer didn't think is was the sec air inj.

    I’ve never really investigated it to far. It’s done it every winter since 2014 and with 126k miles now I figure it can’t be anything too concerning.

    My Tundra does this as well. Also have a friend who had a 2010 and now has a 2015 Tundra, both of his made/make this noise. I don't know what it is, but it seems that every Tundra does it in the extreme cold, so I'm not going to worry.

    Today my Toyota mechanic gave me the info below. The upper intake manifold was replaced today. It is going to be below 20 degrees here late this week so I will post the results.
    SUSPECTED CAUSE
    IS INPERFECTION IN INTERNAL CASTING THAT IS RESULTING IN
    AUDIBLE NOISE.INSTALL UPPER INTAKE MANIFOLD.

    25,000 ! It has been making this noise since new. Upper intake manifold was replaced. It was 18 degrees this AM and it made the same noise so that was not the solution.
