Good Morning There is a bulletin for a whine noise in timing chain caused by the balance shaft tensioner. PIP3535C Dec 19 2017 Hope that helps

Hi Anthony, Was a water pump recently replaced, or any other engine work, (head, timing chain) and that is when the noise started? This happens when the tool J43651 is not used, or is used incorrectly. It sounds like the front cover will need to be removed and the balance shaft tensioner will need to be reset. The PIP Ross mentioned is now PIP3535D.
