SOURCE: Engine whine noise
most likely a belt tensioner or pulley take some penetrating oil and spray the center of each pulley one at a time if the noise stops you got your bad pulley if not take the belts off the motor and spin everything by hand to feel or hear any grinding noises if you still don't feel anything run the motor (not for more then a minute) with the belts off and if the noise is still apparent your timing belt needs to be checked right away! it may be on its way out and if that goes your motor is toast good luck and please rate -jeff

I had the same problem at about the same mileage. Replaced the power steering pump and the start up screaming went away! ( The Jeep's and mine!)

altho new you may have a whining water pump or tensioner or it may be over tensioned.
take a long screw driver & place in on the timing cover to try to here where the noise is coming from, this should help you find the proplem with the car

need to have a shop fix it asap.if the chain breaks or skips timing your entire could possibly need to be replaced.replacing a serpentine belt tensioner is fairly cheap and easy

depends where the whining is coming from, usually it will be a problem with the belts and or one of the pulleys, usually the tensioner pulley or power steering pulley
