    OK truckers/mechanics! Hoping one of you really smart Awsome essential Truckers can help me out Let's see how good you are lol. I havea 2014 Cascadia freightliner. 13 speed. Yesterday I did a drop and hook Pick up an empty trailer noticed a humming are whining sound from what I thought was coming from my throw out bearing. I grease it that really didn't make any difference. Plus I had the clutch changed out this summer. It's almost impossible for me to tell exactly what direction the sounds coming from. But here's the thing, It's not consistent in only happens when the trucks moving down the road it only happens when I begin to accelerate or when on cruise control and it just barely starts to go up the Hill just before it picks up speed. It seems to be in line with throttle but not really speed. May be more with the boost. So it hard to explain but if I climb a hill goes away going down hill or flat comes back but I speed up with throttle it goes away. Also this may be a factor I am smelling exhaust when open my door. May of lost exhaust clamp. I'll find out in the morning. It doesn't make any noises at idle has to be working (OK WHAT YOU GOT) I am lost

    The only thing consistent is on flat or down hill with little torque it comes back. But if I increase speed/ with throttle it goes away. Also nothing if bobtailing or under 20 mph.

    Just another idea. Last week going through town through traffic lights I heard like a whining sound. Pulled over out of town and looked things over. The sound had went away. A few days later my alternator wasn't working. Put the new one I carry with me on and problem seems over. So it could be that? Trouble with ownership..is it a $50 noise or a $5000 noise?
