A whine type noise may develop form the engine area when the car is idling (typically in warmer temperatures, after the engine has warmed up). It's possible that the noise may be from the engine oil system and is harmless. Still, have a technician verify that the noise is nothing to worry about.

    remove foot from accelerator, whine initiates, tone changes as engine downshifts, remains at idle, goes away while accelerating.
