    from sitting awhile.

    sounds pneumatic...like something opening or closing or moving, possibly electronically?

    under the hood from the area of the passenger wheel well or fire wall.

    from a dead stop after starting the truck...it could idle for an hour, but when it's in gear and it rolls up to a few miles an hour...that's when the sound occurs.

    I thought it may have something to do with the HVAC system...but the sound is there with the system turned off.

    any thoughts?

    Does it sound kinda like an electric motor winding up and down really fast? If so, I get that too, though to me it sounds like it comes from the rear of the truck and seems to alternate from the left and right sides. I made a thread about it, but totally wrongfully described it as a chirp when that's not what it was.

    Same noise with my truck -- hard to describe the sound though.

    Might be one of your shocks compressing. I always get that noise when I take a left when I'm leaving where I park at my house. And I always park the same way so the sound always comes from the same place.

    Does it sound similar to a clicking noise? I have the same thing if that's what it sounds like. Everytime I take off, it will make that weird noise and it doesn't sound too good =\.

    I heard this sound from my truck today it is like a low growl coming from pass side front wheel area. It occurs when the truck has been sitting a while and only does it when the wheel starts to move. first in reverse then when I go into drive and roll forward maybe 20 feet, then it quits. Maybe the abs motor or something. My truck is a prerunner if it matters.

    Holy old thread batman!

    More searching has concluded this sound is normal, ABS system calibrating. Thanks TW!
