Gear Whine or Whistling Noise on Dodge Stratus

4-door sedan
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.
