Can't figure out what is making a whining sound under the hood it just started to do this, lot of people say it sounds like the power steering pump, but I have no problem with steering or when I max out my turn. I try to listen closely sound like it is coming from the from around the middle to passenger side don't know if it's a pully or not, it's not squeaking it whines. When I accelerate, the whine get louder as well. It dose not go away when the engine gets warm either. I applied belt dressing to see if it would do any thing, it didn't.

Pulleys. Just did mine. Fixed. Do them all, and the belt.
