2014 SRT whine with acceleration

What's up guys. Looking for some help. Been hearing this whining sound when accelerating lately. Dropped it off at the stealership this past weekend but they told me they found no abnormal sound. I'm not convinced that's a normal sound.

From a quick Google search, the whine started as soon as they started the engine. The whine on my truck is from pressing the gas pedal.

Re: 2014 SRT whine with acceleration

Hard to tell but it appears to whine even when you dont hit the gas. The whine gets louder with gas for sure. Have you pinpointed the location of the whine? Get a stethoscope or a screwdriver and place it on different spots to locate it. Alternator, water pump, power steering pump, trans, etc. Is it running hot? Ive heard of water pumps going out after whining started

That's my fault. I was already on the gas when I started recording the video.
Whine seems to be coming from the drivers side half.
Trucks running at 220-230 degrees Fahrenheit on the street.

Re: 2014 SRT whine with acceleration

My 2010, my 2012 and my 2014 all have a whirling noise when cold under acceleration that I narrowed down to the transfer case. Once warm it goes away.

That does not appear to be your problem, hope you get it tracked down. PS pump very well could have something to do with it.

Re: 2014 SRT whine with acceleration

So I put in a new power steering pump and the noise is still there...

Re: 2014 SRT whine with acceleration

I have the same issue, but definitely not as loud. I had the power steering pump just warrantied as well due to a bad bearing. I can hear it in cabin as I climb in rpms. Bringing it to the dealer next week to see what they say. I wonder if any other bearings are bad or the alternator is going out.

Re: 2014 SRT whine with acceleration

So they just replaced the water pump on my car last week. I now have a whine that I hear in the cabin under acceleration only since the new pump that might be identical. I'll open the hood later and see if its the same noise. If it is, then its surely the water pump as I just got a new (possibly defective) one.

Re: 2014 SRT whine with acceleration

While in park, my noise changes pitch while on the accelerator and turning the wheel from side to side so I was certain it was the pump.
