Can't figure out that whining noise

I have heard that ford's power steering pumps always whine...but my is too loud...i have straights on my 1998 v6, but i can still hear the whining noise...it accelerates when as i accelerate, goes up as rpm's go up...could i do anything about it?...or could it be something else?...can an alternator whine?

It could be any pulley on your engine making that noise but will probably be the idler or tensioner pulley. Raise the hood and see if you can pinpoint which pulley it is.

everything whines, AC, Alt, PS, etc.

When was the last time you changed the fluids? in your PS? could be the viscosity's broken down . . .

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
