Unhappy whining noise coming from car?

ok here is the deal-eo. I was driving my 01 Limited the other day and all of a sudden a loud whining noise started coming from the car. (like the sound you get when your power steering is whining but a tad louder) It was only making the sound when I pushed on the gas, if it was in drive.. not reverse. It only starts after I drive the car for a few minutes and lasts until I stop. I have noticed today that when I stop it still continues to make the noise even when it is in park. I can press the gas (while in park) and it just makes the noise louder. I;m not really sure whats going on and I hope someone can help me ASAP!!

Try opening the hood, and see if you can pinpoint the noise.
Belts usually do it more on startup, power steering pump, too....

I have a suspicion that it's from the transmission. The pumps on some of those transmissions get noisy. With out hearing it it's hard to say though.

Okay well be careful! My 2004 pt auto trans started with the same whining noise about 5 or 6 days ago, then it started taking a second or two to shift the next day, then the day after it started slipping out of gear frequently and it wouldn't go into the last gear at all, and at a stop i would have to rev it up to about 3k rpm to get it to engage, then yesterday at a stop light it decided to quit on me completely.... now I am trying to figure out what the *&!$ happened!!! After it broke down completely it is throwing a p0700 code. I am not sure but I think I need a new transmission.... sooooo..... if anyone has any info please let us know! and if I was you I would park it and not drive it anywhere till you can get it fixed, or you will be in the same boat as me!!!
