Question about 1996 Toyota 4Runner
1996 4runner 6cyl auto. Whining noise when put into reverse or drive. Does not happen in park or neutral. As you accelerate, you hear the whine as it goes through the gears and seems to quiet down some once up to speed and the rpm's drop but doesn't go away completely. It does not seem to effect performance, the truck runs fine. Tranny fluid and filter are fine. Tranny guy thinks it may be the torque converter but wasn't positive. Didn't feel like gambling $1600 to see if he was right. Any chance this could be a U-joint grease issue or alternator issue?
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This Noise Description sounds Indicative of the Sounds that come from the Serpentine Belt Or Related parts such as Belt Idler Pulley or Belt Tentioner witch also has a Pulley, but if Tensioner itself is Literally BROKE I've replaced a number like this it will cause a Whining noise . Best case scenario its just the Belt, and if any of the other Problems turn out to be the Culprit the Belt MUST be Replaced Anyhow as Damage is Being caused By the Very Whining you hear.
PLEASE Spend the Extras $ for the BEST BELT as this Drives your Water pump, Alternator, A/C Compressor, Power Steering Pump All Crucial to Control of, easy Steering ,All Electrical-Power Distribution, The COOLING of Engine << VERY CRITICAL Component
The Pulleys usually have a more Hum type Whining. So I would say at Best The BELT , And WORST Belt Tentioner is Broke

It could be a pully bearing going bad, or your power stearing pump. next time you start it when it's cold try moving your steering wheel left to righ and see if there is any changes. The next time try removing your belt before you start it and see if the noise goes away. The belt could be warn out and hard itll it warms up and soften up. Start with a new belt. Good luck
