Did it make this noise prior to the changing the transmission oil? When they serviced the transmission was the oil pan removed and if so did they mention any sign of debris in the transmission oil? Apart from the whining sound does the transmission appear to shift correctly?

yes it made the noise prior to the change of transmission. also, it shifts correctly besides the noise that comes with it

I would go to a transmission shop and ask them to go for a drive with you, point out the noise and see what they say.

alright thanks...do you think it is just a minor inexpensive problem or could this break the bank?

Hard to say without hearing the noise or being told what is wrong. Shop around if you are told it needs the transmission overhauled. I hope it is something minor but go to a transmission shop and see what they have to say first.
