Radiator Repaired. Now have Supercharger whining sound.

I had my radiator repaired at a local radiator shop. The shop has had a few 6.4's come in for the same problem because ford doesnt fix under warranty. well now truck has supercharged whining sound. brought back to radiator shop and they found a hose r something by the turbo that was loose they said, also stated that my cooler had oil in it and they cleaned it really well along with repairing the radiator. The turbo was change under warranty from the previous owner i bought the truck from. Hopefully it didnt mess my turbos up with the dirty cooler. now the supercharged whining sound is gone. When i floor the truck it sounds like im pushing a whole lot of air through the exhaust , like a loud swishing sound almost how my first 08 sounded with the dpf and cat delete pipe. Dont think it should be sounding like this. any help would be appreciated thanks.

Ok the radiator shop said something by the turbo was loose and the whining sound went away. But now it's back again but only around 3000 rpms.

Check all of you boots. Sounds like they may have left something loose. How much did they charge to repair your raidiator? Did they say what exactly was leaking?

I would think if you were not out of warranty it should be fixed by ford. I have had 4 radiators all for leaks and all replaced by ford.

Still under warranty and they said they cannot fix the problem because it was replaced at an earlier mileage. Which I think is bull:::: because they replaced it and it leaked again. So I told them I'm not paying for a 1500 dollar radiator tomjust start leaking again. So I had it fixed by my local radiator shop. I think this warrany stuff is way over rated.

i was told if the radiator leak is found to be caused by a stuck thermostat it is covered under the motor warranty.
