Default 2012 strange squeak/chirp

Okay so it started a week ago or maybe longer I just noticed it. A very strange squeak/chirp... now its not all the time and its not constant it does not get louder and goes away when you touch the gas... etc... I cant do anything to cause it just goes and comes. You cant hear it with the window up. It sounds like its coming from the converter area

It had been doing it since mid summer. Just haven't had time to take it back to the dealer. The noise seems to come as it pleases. It also makes like a vacuum whistling noise sometime when I shut off the truck.

hey guys, i just had the same issue with my 2012 ram, turns out it was the water pump the bearing internally was bad and was causing a squeaking noise while idling and when i would touch the gas it would go away, replaced under warranty and now the noise is gone and im happy again

Noise is coming from the back of the motor or the front of the tranny. So it cant be the water pump. Calling the dealer tomorrow to set up a apointment. Hopefully it makes the noise when they get it.

That makes sense.... Mine was doing it again yesterday so I rolled under mine with a long bar that I stuck to the oil pan and everywhere but the only place that sounded strange was the water pump.

I found this video that is close to what mine sounds like.

Default Update?

I have the exact noise on my 2009.
What was the fix.
I have changed the Serpentine belt, idler and tensioner.
Still Got the noice.
