Just bought a used 2022 Ram 2500 6.4 Hemi with 13,000 miles on her. I came from a Tundra so Im still trying to get used to the different sounds this Hemi makes. My Issue is on start up I hear a high pitch whine like sound. It almost sounds like a squeaky belt! It's really load when in gear but not moving! of course amplified in my driveway! sometimes I can hear it even after she warms up! If anyone can shed some light on this situation that would be great. And if this has been covered before here sorry about the repeat ? I promise I did search before hand. I uploaded a video of it. Second half of the video is when I put it in drive.....Thanks

A "squeal" normally indicates a slipping belt or bearings going out - possibly in the water pump. In my experience, of course.

Take a hard, up close look at the etorque belt, assuming it is an etorque motor. I carry a spare always, and a water pump belt too.
