2000 Dodge Intrepid Question: wining noise

the car is making a wining noise when it is running i think it sounds like the starter is staying ingaged did anybody have this problem -
Answer 1
The whining noise is not likely the starter. If the starter was staying engaged there would also be a grinding noise as well. A closer inspection may reveal that the Power Steering Pump or Generator is the source. In rare instances, the Transmission Torque Converter will make a whining noise and or the Transmission itself. In this case, failure is imminent. -
Answer 2
Sounds like the transmission to me. There are several belts inside an automatic transmission and when it is going bad it will whine. -
