tranny slips can also mean that you may need to change the tranny filter. But just like cooking oil at first it is thick then you add heat and it gets thinner, same for tranny oil which could also mean that your tranny needs gear and plate work. The easiest way to find out is to insert the oil dip stick, clean it with a paper towel and check to see if you can see metal shivers or if the color of the tranny oil is not red but silverish, these are usually indictative of a tranny that needs an overhaul. hope this helps.
Good Luck =)

If the whine is there than the main bearing is already worn adding fluid will not save it, you will have to swap it or rebuild it. sorry i know you were hoping for something better.

Check the oil level in the transmission. More than likely you will need the 5th gear syncro and gear replaced at a minimum.
