I have been driving this car for over a month now and it just started whining or whirring or whatever instead of the normal growl the engine had for the first month of driving, I don't hear it when in park and revving the engine but when I try and get on the highway or take of fast it whines instead of growls where should I start to fix this/find this problem?

Do you

I would start by checking the transmission fluid level and what color condition it looks and smells.

I checked it a month ago it was red now it is brownish but still clear enough to see through, I think it might be a little low but it is hard to tell the dipstick seems to be at the full mark.

If you hear it in park also your going to have to use a long screwdriver to track the noise down.
