Check the accessory belt under the hood. It sounds loose. Chances are the tensioner is bad.

Changed belt that made no difference. Sounds like it is coming from the back of the engine. I was told by a diesel mechanic that it was the hooter valve. What is that?

I hate to say it, but yes, it is an actual part. It is the crankcase vent valve. See the pic attached.
