Weird engine whirring noise when engine hot???

Hey all,


I am getting a weird engine whirring noise. Here are the important facts:


--2016 Latitude w/ factory hitch and engine cool;
--V6 with ESS;
--The sound is a whirring coming from the engine like the sound from when a car is idling and the fan kicks in.
--It starts when the Jeep has been running for 10-15 minutes or so and continues constantly while I am driving;
--It stops (temporarily) once I stop and the ESS kicks on turning the engine "off" and when it turns "on" again, no more sound.
--But it comes back some time later.


Any thoughts?

I have a similar.it is almost like an old fashioned whirring sound radios used to get like an alternator whine but this is a steady pitch. I put it down to air intake or exhaust. So both are about to go!

Hey snatraps99,

Have you been to your dealership yet for diagnosis of the issue? Let me know if I can help facilitate!

I thought I heard something too recently, just figured it was the fan ... no?

I have not had a chance to take it in as I work long hours during the week. I could take it in one the weekend but I need to have a car to use while they check it out. Any help you could offer would be great!

yeah... so this is still going on. Took it to the shop and the jerks there were of ZERO help. I had recordings and videos and they... well they just sucked! This is embarrassing! The sound is so loud and annoying. It is the fan kicking on and just staying on. When the ESS kicks in and the engine turns off, it stops and will stay off for a few minutes or so after I start moving again. Then it is back. Such crap! My 2015 V6 KL did not have this issue but my 2016 does??? Come on!


Anyone else???

Check your transmission temperature when you hear the swirling noise. My fan came on at 203 F when the transmission got to that number and stopped at 197 degrees when it cooled a little bit. My transmission usually stays around 159 to 165 except in stop and go traffic and mainly stopping and then it goes up to that high number. And it did sound like a swirling sound and the fan does sound obnoxious. I always turn off ESS so can't help you there.
