    So I bought this car in February for 2500. I too have the whine upon accelerating. I have put a lot of money into educated guesses and still have the noise. Hilariously enough, it actually caused our break-up. He hated working on the car and pretty much was a jerk and threw tantrums when he was fixing it. Throwing tools and parts....Anyways, I have tried replacing the alternator decoupler pulley, the power steering pump, all four tires, the arm thingy that the wheel bearing sits into, the wheel bearings, and I'm religious with maintenance and using only the most expensive oil you can buy at Walmart. lol. Tomorrow, I'm getting the transmission flushed. I'll post the results. Not for you, original poster. Shoot, you've probably gotten a new vehicle. But for those many poor souls, like myself.

    Have you tried checking your AC compressor?
