This noise is new and it's honestly the most annoying thing ever. It's really loud when the engine is warm but on a nice day it'll do it for about 5 minutes but if it's a cold day it will be doing it for about 25min without going away. It seems like it's a belt but I could be wrong. It does match the RPM but if I'm driving and it's making the noise, I usually put it in neutral and it stops for that moment. At low speeds it usually don't happen if the engine is under 2k RPM. Can and one identify where this noise is coming from and if so how to solve it??! Here's a quick video and much help is needed. I really appreciate any help I can get
