New Vacuum sound at start up....

I am used to the sounds when I start my disco. But this morning and after work today when I started it there was an unrecognizable noise. It sounded like a high pitch vacuum cleaner wine. It last as long as the normal sounds and after about 2 min cuts off. No change in anything else with the car. Where should I start looking?

SO when I got home I opened the hood and went up front. I throttled up a bit to see if I could find the sound. It is a high pitched wine. It really sounds like it is coming from the throttle body itself. I am going to do an induction cleaning as well as clean the inside of the throttle body. Any other thoughts?

does the truck have secondary air, the chrome valves would be on both sides of the engine, when the engine is cold the secondary air will make a loud like a vacuum or hair drier sound, this normal, does the truck have high miles & what year is it.

2000 disco II with SAI and it has 134,000 miles. I did find a vacuum hose undone. But the sound continued after I fixed it. I was planning on opening the hood tomorrow when I start it to leave in the am.

check the opposite side of the intake (from the throttle body), there are 2 hoses that go into the intake. directly under those hoses there is another connection capped off... that blank rubber cap will rot/crack and fall off. this might be the source of the "whistle" sound.
