Mine has acquired the identical symptoms. A whine-no vibrations. Gets louder the faster you travel, clutch in-no noise, engine decellerating vehicle-no noise, apply any pressure to accelerator pedal-noise returns. No changes in turns, no difficulty shifting gears, nothing grinding. Transmission fluid-okay, haven't checked the PTU or diff fluid yet. Engine itself sounds good.
Any insight is greatly appreciated.
