problem #1

Dec 272018

1500 Sport 5.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles

When its cold outside(-20c), during a cold startup the truck whines pretty loud for about 10 seconds and returns to normal. I suspect its the belt tensioner or a pulley but I don't want to deal with the dealerships run around. Will wait until total failure!

Update from Feb 22, 2020: it was the belt tensioner
