Winding Noise

This has been bugging me for a while. When I crank up the truck, put in drive, and give it some gas, before it changes to second it sounds like Im revving the engine to a high RPM (which is not the case) almost like its a manual and I have no idea what it is. A buddy suggested it may be the turbo winding up or whatever it does in there and is just still spinning. Anyone have any suggestions as to what it is, if Im making any sense at all.

Note: It only happens every now and then, mostly when its a fresh start. I would do a search but I dont know what Im looking for...

If I understand you correctly, then my truck does it to on occasion. To me it sounds like the engine fan is engaging but then after a few seconds it quits, not abruptly it kinda tapers off. I figured it was the fan, as the turbo shouldn't make that much noise. But if anyone else has any ideas we would love some input.
FYI- your problem may be with the fact that you "give it some gas". Don't give it gas, Give it diesel, these engines prefer that..... Sorry I couldn't resist!

yeah at first I thought it may have been the fan, but then wondered why the fan would kick on when the truck is still cold.

Its the fan my cummins did it as well with the engine cold. Got to remember that it has a viscus fan clutch and it takes it a few to get loose again after sitting.

Mine does this as well. It's the fan. As far as I know it's normal.

For what it's worth mine does it too when I am shifting up from 1st to 2nd. Mine is a manual. I have listened closely and I would have to agree that it is the fan kicking in. And yes it does it when cold.

The fan will also kick in even when cold if I kick on the high idle. Even when I is 10 degrees outside.
