It could be your low on power steering fluid also it could be bad bearings in the alternator or tensioner pulley .All 3 of these will give you a whining noise.If you have a long screw driver you can use it for amplified sound by holding it up to you ear at the handle and the metal part down to the alternator ext. the hear the noise better.

Your catalytic converter is clogged up inside and has melted down.The rattle noise you here is a chunk of the inside of the catalytic converter that has melted and broken off.You will need to replace the catalytic converter.

V8 automatic check engine light came on read either internal trans failure or pressure wrong, whines when first taking off and !st and second gear are are realllly close when shifting from the steering...

First thing I would check...make sure your trans fluid level is correct, I experienced similar symptoms last week when my Brother overfilled his 2000 Ram....we disconnected the trans line at the cooler,... ran some out,.....CLEARED THE CODES! all was well afterward

no there are no adjustments that will cause the trans to whine may be a front pump failure or a valve body problem a pro is best for you transmissions are very complicated and can be messed up easily

1995 Dodge Ram 1500 starter

You said it's a new start that was tested thoroughly, but just wanted to point out that if the drive mechanism is damaged or hung up, the motor may spin but not crank the engine. The drive gear should move out when the starter starts to spin, if it's locked up or turns freely either way, the drive is bad and needs to be replaced.

The other possibility is that the flywheel has some broken or damaged teeth that are preventing the starter from engaging. It may sound far fetched but there are really only a couple of reasons why the flywheel wouldn't be spinning, as a starter has a LOT of torque and shouldn't have any problem at all moving the flywheel.
