Gear Whine or Whistling Noise on Dodge Stratus

Problem Description and Possible Solution

A gear whine or whistling type noise heard when accelerating or coasting between approximately 65mph and 85mph may actually be caused by an improperly seated steering column boot. The steering column boot seals the steering shaft as it passes through the firewall.

A gear whine type noise can be heard at freeway speeds. Sounds similiar to a jet engine. I have no idea what it is. Goin to the dealer this afternoon.
