Red face 2001 PT Cruiser

I've looked at different threads on here but there are just so many of them. I have a PT Cruiser that when I accelerate it makes a high pitch whistling noise but stops after I get over 2 RPM any clue what might be causing it? Thanks New to the forum.

Hard to equate people's descriptions of noises....
Belts (power steering, A/C, etc) usually make a noise described as a "squeal" or "screech". Usually a "whistle" is a vacuum leak. Look at all small (vacuum) hoses.
Is Idle okay? Often a vacuum leak louses up the idle.

No doesn't effect idle and really saying it's a whistling sound is spot on cause that's exactly what is sounds like a whistle not a belt for sure belts usually make a squealing sound. It doesn't make it when it's in park ideling just when I first pull off but stops after I get over 2 RPM.
