I have recently noticed a high pitched whine, acompanied by a definite vibration through the steering column, and a slight shimmy in the front. It abates as the car warms up. Current mileage is 101,000. I have all the original belts yet.

Most likely you will need to change your belts and tensioners. The belts are probably so loose that they are slipping. I would change them immedietely since major engine damage could occur
