Oil pan buzzing sound 3.8

Have about 60,000 miles on my Genesis. It makes a loud buzzing noise that's much louder when it's cold. It definitely seems to be coming from the oil pan area. Here's a video what it sounds like.

Also I took off the fan belt and ran it and it still makes the noise so it's none of the things attached to that.

Thanks any help is appreciated

Well, definitely RPM derived so driven off the crank. With the accessories belt removed, you eliminate the alternator, water pump, AC pump, and power steering(It does sound like a power steering problem, to be honest) so you're left with the chain-drive subsystems. That's one of two things, Timing, and oil pump. Either of which have you grounded until you get it checked out. How's your oil level? Last filter change? Possible water in the system? I'd say all you can do is an oil change, then you're off to the dealer. Probably via tow truck. 100k mile warranty on the powertrain! YAY

You were right, Oil pump! Thank you for the reply. This is the best info I could have asked for!
