SOURCE: alternator whine
I had a buddy that had the same problem with his Altima for about a year and I kept telling him that his alternator was going to die and he wouldn't believe me. I was suprised it took so long, but it eventually gave up the ghost and I replaced it for him. Fixed the whine and now we can't here him coming before we see him any more. The only way you are going to get rid of it is to change it out. This is the warning that it is on it's way out. Hope this helps. Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Rear diff whining noise
Give the old man a pat on the back! There is an oil plug on the rear differential. On a level surface, remove the plug; if oil starts to flow out, the fluid is full. If no oil flows, carefully put your finger in the hole and feel for the oil level. Your finger should go no lower than the first knuckle before you feel oil. If it goes further, you are low on oil and should either fill it up or better yet replace it. Rear axle oil doesn't get replaced nearly often enough in most vehicles and since your truck is 18 years old, would be a bad idea to have it changed. Best of luck.

Have the tranny serviced with fluid change and filter, if noise it still there it is the torque converter . Have the dealer fix it ,and have it on paper with dealer invoice when it is done. Do all this before warranty expires. IT IS NOT USUAL for any car, Toyota included, to have tranny whine!!!!!

Clicking is usually due to a bad axle shaft.
