TERRIBLE WHINING COMING FROM (WHAT SOUNDS LIKE) DASH OR FRONT OF CAR WHEN DRIVING.

Hello,

Its done this before I went to the mechanics. And after, its starting up again. Its real strange.

So, I bought this car from my friend (and it worked beautifully) He loved the car, but he wanted to get a 80's Camero.

Anyways, When I was driving back home. All of a sudden! The car started to make this terrible whining sound!
But, only when the car is in motion. Does not matter if I am accelerating.
It starts around 40mph, and gets louder if you move faster.

What the heck could it be?

Thanks.

Could be the speedometer cable or the speedometer.

The speedo cable may need to be lubricated.
