Default 2011 ecoboost noise on start up

Almost sounds like a fan blade hitting on something for about 1 to 2 seconds then it stops. Only happens after it sits up for a while.. Gonna check it after work, but anybody had this happen are any ideas?

I'd guess the obvious thing to check is the fan. With the truck OFF reach down where the fan is and see if there some play or wobble. If you are under warranty take to the dealership. A video on start up of what you are hearing would help tremendously.

Secondary air pump maybe? It's for emission purpose. It usually kicks in first you start and stops after while.

The truck only has 45,000 miles on it. Vacuum pump shouldn't be going out and making a loud noise like that??? First thing, I'm going to check the radiator fan when I get home... But thanks for all the suggestions and keep them coming... Will post results later!!

It shouldn't be super loud but you can hear it at times. Sounds like what you are hearing is really loud. Might want to get it checked.
