owl under the hood?

I have a 1989 /taurus, 3.8 v-6, automatic, air, and without the air pump.
I have a noise under the hood which sounds like a cross between an owl and a trombone. (if you can picture that) I can't seem to localize the noise.
Any ideas?

Make sure all of your fluids are full if not fill them.If they are full remove the drive belt and start the car and see if the noise is still there.Let us know what you find out.
