This vehicle is notorious for a "whining" noise. The slower you drive, the louder it is. At first I thought our power-steering pump was going, or the transmission was whining. Two mechanics told me it's normal. Just a quirk with Dodge/Chrysler products. I had that whining noise and it was the alternator making the noise through the radio. even when the radio is off. Just a thought.

What does it mean when a car makes a straining or whining sound when you accelerate?

When a car makes a whining sound when accelerating, it might be a fan belt that is not performing properly. If the fan belt is reasonably new, add a few drops of dish soap to the inside to quiet it. If the fan belt is showing signs of wear, like cracks or slack, put on a new fan belt. Also, check the air cleaner. If the air cleaner is missing, the car will make a horrible squealing noise when accelerating.
