Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help with this today.I apologize for any delay.

If this noise is coming from the engine bay area but may be coming from where the engine bolts up to the transmission this can be a fault with the transmission fluid pump failing as this is common to whine when it starts to fail.I have also seen issues with the power steering pump whining on the front of the engine with it needing replaced or low on fluid due to a power steering fluid leak needing located and repaired.I have also seen other pulleys/components on the front of the engine start to fail as the bearings start to fail in them like the idler pulley/tensioner pulley or alternator cause this as well.

All of these will need checked into to locate which is the cause here and from there that component can be replaced to correct this fault.
