SOURCE: loud whirring noise at start-up
The first thing to check would be to make sure the power steering reservoir is not running near empty, locate the filler cap for the power steering pump it should be marked and then add the appropriate amount making sure you don't over fill, that may make the sound go away if not we must move on to the next possibility, by the way if the noise gets louder when you turn the steering wheel it is most likely the power steering pump or fluid level is low.

I just got rid of the same problem, it was driving me crazy. It turned out to be the transmission input speed sensor. I first replaced the output speed sensor (yes,there is two) and problem continued. Then changed the input speed sensor and finally solve the problem. I advice to star replacing the input speed sensor first.
This is a "dealer only" item and is $ 89.00.
Is pretty simple to replace. Input speed sensor is right bellow air filter on top of transmission, if you're standing in front of the car you'll see two sensors , they are black an you can see the wires coming from the main bundle attached to them. The sensor closer to you is the output, the one farther is the input speed sensor.
Hope this helps. If you are a DIY person I can help with more details

I had what sounds like the exact same problem. It was an exhaust leak from the left (driver's) side exhaust manifold. This engine has a history of the manifold bolts breaking and causing the exhaust leak. The engine is also used on some Dodge vehicles. It sounds like a tick and I almost mistook it for a bad lifter. I took it to the local Jeep dealer who confirmed the exhaust leak. I replaced the left manifold completely and replaced bolts/gaskets on both sides (left/right) and it fixed the problem. Be careful, as the dealer tried to gouge me on the price. You are looking in the ball park of $600 parts/labor. I got parts for $120 and it took the better part of a work day to do the job.
