Question about 1994 Mazda MX-5
My 1990 Miata whines alot, but only when I accelerate. Whine seems to be louder at middle speeds. Once I stop pressing the gas peddle, the whining stops. Annoying, but the car keeps working well otherwise. Appreciate any thoughts you may have.
Also check the rubber air duct from filter box to throttle plate on intake, sometimes they split ,when engine torque at accelerating,opens the split enough and sometime sounds like a whining noise.

Check your have power steering fluid level. If its low look for a leak, it may be that your power steering pump is going. If so replace it ASAP.
That can cause a serious accident.

Have you tried to narrow the noise location. is it comming from the transmision safety plate? is it comming from the belts, or a pully? Have someone litely step on the gas and try to reproduce the noise while not in gear. If possible locate the noise, or narow it down to some sort of location. There are just to many variables to say what it is at this point.
Let net me know once you get more info
