I have been driving my 1997 Honda Civic LX for over two years, and this past year the winter has been horrible. Now, every time I start my car (when it is cold) I hear a whining sound. It used to just be when my car was started, but now, the noise has gotten louder and occurs more often. While driving, the whining gets more high pitched the higher the RPM's go up. The sound starts as soon as the gears are shifted.&Quot; winds up" and stops, just to start again right before the car shifts again. It is an automatic transmission, and I have no idea why it is making this noise. Please help. It sounds like my car is screaming, and it sounds like it's in pain. If you get my drift. What should I look for/what can I do?
