Question about 2007 Nissan Xterra Off Road
The whining noise happens at 110 km/hr (+/- 5 km/hr) only when the gas pedal is pressed /held. Let gas pedal go and noise goes away. Why? What may be the issue?

I had the same problem in my Pathfinder a couple months ago. It's most likely your fan clutch. I had mine replaced, and the noise went away. And it seems that it is the cold weather causes this.

Probably the front differential, your probably hearing the famous differential gear whine. Change the oil, put Lucas for gears in it. You can get a hand operated oil pump to **** it out through the dip stick if it has one. Then fill it with the recommended amount.

typically, this sounds like a wheel bearing. To test, the noise can often be altered by accellerating /decelerating, and more evident by turning the vehicle.
The truning process is to put load on one side, then the other. if the right side has a damaged bearing, for example, the noise would be noticibly altered (less in this case) when turning to the right. Load would be slightly less. Testing speed in the area of 25 to 35 mph.
