Whining in engine

There as been a whine coming from the engine lately. I read up on this and found out it could be the idlers. I just replaced all the idlers and tensioner and it still has been making the noise so it's not any of those. I know it isn't the power steering and it doesn't make the noise at an idle. It just does it on acceleration and going a constant speed. Any ideas on what it could be?

Are you sure it's coming from the engine? I've had two things like this happen to me, although both on my 01. They were old differential fluid and a wheel bearing.

If it doesn't make the sound when revving in neutral then it's likely driveline related and not engine related.

It always sucks having to track down noises when the car is running perfectly fine. I know that feel bro

It doesn't do it when you rev it. So What about the driveline? Anything serious?

Is it auto or manual?

When driving at a constant speed, if you put it in neutral, does the whine stop or change?

The whining goes quieter as the rpms go down.

Does it go away completely if the trans in in neutral? We are trying to figure out if its transmission or motor related. If the noise is still there when you are in neutral then it leads to transmission, even more so since you said you can't hear the noise when revving.

If it is in fact a transmission whine then low fluid and even a bad transmission mount come to mind.

No it's still present if you put it in neutral.

How do you check transmission fluid? I have never found a spot to check it.
