I had a similar whine last summer--only showed up at steady engine speeds,
especially idle.  The first thing I did was check the belt.  It felt fine.
I then loosened the belt to check out the water pump.  It seemed fine.  When
I retightened the belt, the whine went away.  It hasn't returned since.  I
guess the belt was just loose enough to be whining, even though it felt
tight enough.

Not to say that's your problem, but you might want to re-tighten the belt
just to be sure.

Good luck!

I've got a high pitch whine (sounds like a loose fanbelt, but it's not)
that I can't pinpoint. At times it sounds as if it's coming from the
waterpump or there abouts, at other times it sounds as though it's from
the transmission (maybe a throw-out bearing?) The sound goes away when
under a slight load yet comes back at idle or at cruise speed. Any
