Question Question Re 7.3 in the Heat

It's been getting hotter outside and we're staying around mid to upper 90s everyday.

I've noticed since the weather outside has gotten hotter that in the first 1 min of driving my truck after starting it up it sounds like the fan is real loud with acceleration.

After a minute, sometimes less, it goes away. I noticed last night when I left the gym and it was much cooler, no fan noise at all, just the sound of the diesel.

The truck drives fine and runs cool, I just wanted to know if this noise is normal since it seems to correlate with the heat outside.

It's normal. It'll also come on when it gets really hot out.
