it happens while engine is running when vehicle is still and while accelerating, sounds like crappy supercharger. Lol. When im at a steady speed its not noticeable. But at idle its has a decent volume to it, which can be clearly heard from inside the car.
UPDATE: Got out my stethoscope and touched it to the alternator, sound doesn't match the whine I hear. Touched the power steering pump, and I hear a little bit of the whine. I finally touched the a/c compressor and I believe that the noise I heard from it, matched the whine exactly. So the a/c compressor is the culprit, I think. Brought it to a buddy of mine and he concurs. The a/c works just fine, so I guess I'll just wait till it dies and then replace it, unless there is cause for concern and better replace it sooner than later.
