This Noise Description sounds Indicative of the Sounds that come from the Serpentine Belt Or Related parts such as Belt Idler Pulley or Belt Tentioner witch also has a Pulley, but if Tensioner itself is Literally BROKE I've replaced a number like this it will cause a Whining noise . Best case scenario its just the Belt, and if any of the other Problems turn out to be the Culprit the Belt MUST be Replaced Anyhow as Damage is Being caused By the Very Whining you hear.
PLEASE Spend the Extras $ for the BEST BELT as this Drives your Water pump, Alternator, A/C Compressor, Power Steering Pump All Crucial to Control of, easy Steering ,All Electrical-Power Distribution, The COOLING of Engine << VERY CRITICAL Component
The Pulleys usually have a more Hum type Whining. So I would say at Best The BELT , And WORST Belt Tentioner is Broke

First of all make sure your anti-freeze is at specification level's as well as make sure With the engine cold start the vehicle remove the radiator cap and make sure you see the flow of anti-freeze while keeping your hands as well as your clothing away from moving parts feel both hoses going into your heater core if the one on top of hot one on the bottom is cold then you have a Clogged heater core in which case you will need to flush the system . a simple garden hose will do the trick simply remove Both hoses to the heater core with the hose at the bottom line apply the garden hose until liquid comes out at the top of the other hose will probably see a lot of gunk. Also ensure that the vacuum line to the round ball under the hood is connected and not dry rotted.this will cause a vacuum leak to not allow the switch to fully engage from cold to hot. I hope this helps you.

1) disconnect battery cables and push them out of the way
2) underneath the van unbolt (13mm) large cable assembly from starter
3) push red clip forward on small starter connection and push in on clip to remove (sometimes these clips are a pain to get to release)
4) still underneath the van locate and remove bottom starter bolt (15mm) - the bolt is on the transmission side of the engine near the front motor mount bracket, the large wire assembly in front of the transmission sometimes hides it)
5) now you can work up top of the engine - located a stud above where you removed the bottom starter bolt. It will have two wires attached to it. I think the bolt size is a 13mm. Remove the two wires.
6) This stud is really a long starter bolt. If follow the stud to the engine block you will discover it has a 15mm nut on it. You will need a deep 15mm socket and extension to get this bolt out. Mine was really tight! I ended up removing the battery tray and loosening the coolant tank to get enough leverage.
7) Now you can go underneath and pull the starter towards the passenger side. I had to move a few wires to the side and tilt it to snake it out.
8) Installation is just a reversal of removal.

2002 Dodge Caravan, Tranny would shift, DTC P0700, P0725

I have similar problem. Tranny won't shift. Codes pulled P0700 P0725 (engine speed input circuit). Does this mean the Input turbine speed sensors is defective?

Any ideas!

Much appreciated.
