Default 2006 Turbo Lite - Whine in first gear

I have a 2006 pt cruiser turbo lite. It is an automatic with 55,000 miles. Just a week ago it seems that it has developed a whine while accelerating in 1st gear (RPM dependent). When it shifts to second, the whine disappears. It seems to shift fine otherwise and it isn't slipping. Anyone have any idea what this is?

If this is power steering related, I do have a secondary issue. The steering wheel has a slight whirring noise when it is turned. Its faint, but it is there.

I don't know how a PS issue would disappear with a gear change, although, of course, RPM's do drop.

You might wish to drop transmission pan and check for inordinately large shavings/chunks. (There will always be some, small metal shavings in ATX sump)
There's an 'e'-manual floating around that describes exactly what's inside that transmission in fairly simple terms.
