Weird sound from truck?

So I went out and warmed my truck up this morning.
It started fine, but then it started to make a sound. It reminded me of when you crank the wheel hard to one side and you hear the power steering pump. It finally went away after it warmed up.
I just got full synthetic put in at the stealer.
Now I'm worried if they filled or did something worse.
Any ideas?
I have a clip but its not uploading here at work.
Ill post when I get home.

I may be speaking out of turn and without all required information, but it's not unheard of for there to be a little air that makes it's way through the system after a flush/fill. Driving it and turning the wheel back & forth will usually take care of it. Definitely check the fluid level first.

With that being said, if it goes on for days & days, it's possible a suction line has an air leak and is re-introducing air into the system. If that's the case, you'll have to have them find the leak and tighten the connection or replace the hose.

This just sounds like a power steering pump.
I had the engine oil changed. Also it has been cold lately. Like in the teens.
Here's the clip.

kind of sounds like the sound my truck is making in the mornings. mine used to quit after just a few minutes but now its starting to do it longer.

I think it may be the timing cain starting to go.

I do know that it hasn't been this cold the whole time I've had the truck.
I can't see your location
How cold do the winters get.

Could be that the belt is cold? Cold rubber, doesn't have the grip that a warm belt does. Could also be your fan clutch, I know right when I crank my truck up, regardless of outside temp/engine temp, the clutched fan engages and runs for a few seconds. Could also be a bad tensioner on the accessory belt.

Just throwing ideas out.

Haha I agree! We are going to Orlando in May. I wanted to drive, but my wife doesn't want to spend 17+ hours in the truck!
Up side! it didn't sound as bad last night after work or this morning.
.
Maybe it's just a belt.
Just a little nervous since its now paid off and I'm told its mine for the next 10 years!😳
