The wining noise is most likely the power steering pump. It's whining because the reservoir is low on fluid due to the fact that you probably have a leaking power steering rack and pinion. Check the fluid in the PS reservoir cold, then hot there are marks on the side for both. If the reservoir is low inspect the bellows boots underneath on the right and left sides of the rack for signs of leakage. You may have to pierce them with a small dental pick/nail to see if any fluid leaks out, there should be none in either, if so you need a new rack and pinion. The pump is o.k., it's whining because the fluid is aerated. This information is based on if you have a steering concern, you may have a transmission concern also. the stiff column may be a valve body issue, you may need to drop the trans pan and inspect for metal debris which would indicate an internal failure.

Depending on your mileage, if the transmission is mounted side ways (Front wheel Drive) the upper or top, or rear mount can wear out. This causes the engine and transmission to twist binding the linkage on the transmission, However I have not see a 2007 and if it was bad the drive train should still be under warranty if it's not over 100,000 miles. The tork on the other mounts could cause this noise you are speaking of. Also they use oil filled mounts to isolate the engine pulses so when the oil leaks out the motor mount goes metal to metal. However I think the brakes not holding tight so in theory a motor mount could cause this could cause it. A way to test it is put the transmission in forward gear then reverse if it makes a clunking sound then you have some wear somewhere. If you have another person put it in forward and reverse and watch the engine you can find where the noise is coming from. However I will see if it is listed as an after market part and give you a link that you can look at and the price for each. After looking at one of the mounts this may not be your problem here is the link and the price for one of the mounts.

The electronic shift solenoids in those transmissions make a ticking noise when shifting, same as when you slow down and stop, you will hear it as well, if it's quiet and your window is down. My guess is what your hearing is normal but if worried, stop at any reputable mechanic shop, or dealer and they will confirm it, free of charge.

On most of these type vehicles, with the heavy duty and lower geared transmissions this is normal, when accelerateing hard it will stay in lower gear longer...
