My gear in park but my dash says neutral

The sound occurs when i press the gas pedal even in park.

subsides little when driving. No trouble shifting (auto trans) , no leaks. Any ideas of what it could be. A/C also died. Could they be related?

I just need the lights off before I get an inspection

TIMING CHAIN and pulleys

Bearings replaced in april. same day messed up. replaced rod and bearings. two weeks later replaced bearings again.
two weeks later replaced hub, spindle with bearings. One month later bearing bad again. Shop thinks a problem in Transmissiom causing it.

Just brought in in for a check/tune. Mechanic is very thorough and very good (great reputation!). Changed a bearing in the left front wheel, recharged A/C, and checked hoses and transmission oil (very clean!)There are no "check engine" lights. We are leaving on a trip from Louisiana to Tennessee Monday and wife is a little antsy. It's either more pronounced at lower speeds or maybe I can just hear it. Engine doesn't seem to be straining and is shifting properly. Any ideas as to what would be causing this whining noise? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Oh, I don't pull anything and It has about 108k miles!

If my brake system needs repair, how much will it cost?

It happens when I let off the brake to gas as well. It's just a single knock under the floor on the left side.

the symbol of an engine comes on just over the heat gauge,is this cylinder head coolant port hard to get to,do I tackle this and the two thermostatsas well? I haven't even had the car 24 hours and already I have to look into some repair, please help

I checked the fuses but all are good. Also, the horn stopped working as well a few days before the rear tailights. Could they be related?

There is no difference in the way it drives or brakes. Is this a costly and difficult fix? I've heard differing opinions. It come on while driving on a bumpy, back country road.
