Strange noise happening more frequently

When I start the jeep and let it warm up, I hear a 'moaning' sound coming from the front of the engine. I guess it could be a bearing, but was wondering if anyone can point me in a general direction for troubleshooting. It quits when the jeep has warmed up.

Souns like it could be a bearing or what I really think is happening is the clutch that keeps the fan running at a constant speed is sticking until the jeep warms up.

I would replace the fan clutch, belts or belt. That should clear it up.

Does the serpentine belt control the fan?? If so that was the first thing I replaced when I bought it in June. I will have my mechanic evaluate the fan clutch. Thanks for the reply.
