I'm thinking it's normal, but I'm sitting at work, bored outta my mind and figure it wouldn't hurt to ask. With everything else I'm trying to figure out on this truck, this is the least of my worries.

While driving, the engine [or so it sounds] makes a whirring/whining type noise. It doesn't sound bad and isn't real loud, but it kind of sounds like maybe a small turbo (never owned a turbo vehicle, so I may be off on the sound). I can't tell if it's while giving it gas, as I have no muffler on the truck, but I definitely hear it it when I'm off the gas. The truck is an '01 4x4 5.9L and the tires are Nitto Terra Grapplers, but it doesn't sound like road noise. It's not a squeal, screech, whistle, or grinding. The best way I can describe it is as a whir.

Sucking air onto the engine? What mine does then after the intake it really became apparent.

Could be a alternator or one ofthe pulleys or the fan clutch is bad and stuck locked.

Or maybe the flux capacitor. Did you figure it out have you tried tolisten under the hood whileit is running and pin point the noise.

If you have taken the air filter box off at any time the gasket might have torn and you are just sucking air and it makes a low whisting sound.
