    Are you speaking of the bearing that the cv shaft runs into at the transaxle or the cv shaft itself?

Hat u need to do is drive vehicle until you hear this pitch once you hear it turn steering to the right to see if whine disappears if it does you are looking at replacing wheel bearing.

High Pitched Whine


A high pitched whine like that indicates a bad bearing. Water pump, power steering pump, accessory belt slipping, alternator bearing, or in the worst case scenerio, Transmission pump.

The most common cause would be a defective power steering pump.

Maybe a stretched transfer case chain.
I wouldn't rule out some trans issues

I have 4.3 L and i keep on hereing a high piched noises


You need to determine which pulley your noise is coming from,the best way is to use a long extension and place it on each item and just touch it to your ear,then you will be able to hear how each of them have there own sound.but from here,i'll place my money on the alternator,they do put off a high pitch noise when the front bearing is drying out on them

Same problem: a high pitch whine after extended driving


Sounds like a dry/failing bearing or power steering pump noise. You first need to try to track down where the noise is originating, and the most likely place is at the front of the engine.
I would start by listening with the hood up while parked with the engine running and the noise present, and seeing if it is coming from there. If so, the most likely cause is something connected to the belt - e.g. AC compressor clutch, tensioner, power steering pump, or generator. Can also be caused by the belt just slipping (warn out belt, tensioner not working properly).

MPV 2001 burning smell, high whine?


Sound like the alternator bearings are seized or about to seize. The noise could be the bearings or the belt and the smell may be either of them also.
