Well without further analysis or information, a short answer would be that your engine is BROKEN.

if it sounds like a high pitched whining then it may just be your cool air intake

Friction in the transmission system may cause whining noise when a car is accelerating. A poor engine or clutch assembly may cause the excess friction in the transmission system.

What kind of howling? Or is it a whining? Where does it sound like it's coming from.

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.

My 98 Ford Explorer eddie bauer edition as started to make this whining noise when im accelerating.. it stops when i take my foot off the gas...what is going on?

The loud whining sound could be wheel bearings going out. However, it is also possible that the speedometer bearings or cable are defective.

its the pinion gear usually happens when the Axel assembly . is low on fluid, or from hi mileage usage, ether replace the Axel assembly .the Axel bearings get hot and start whining. thanks

A whining noise in the transmission is usually an indication the transmission fluid is low. Check the transmission fluid and fill it to the recommended level.

There are generally two signs that the alternator is going bad. First is the noise. A new noise will begin to be heard. Something like a whining when the car is accelerating. Second is the smell. You may smell burning from the engine department.

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.

A clicking noise, when accelerating, can be caused by a worn CV joint. The CV joint can cause the axle to collapse when it breaks.

wheel bearing, gearbox or wind noise Supercharger?

noise and jolting is present whilst car is idolling and accelerating

Check the power steering pump for the cause of the noise. I sounds like the pump is causing the whining and is either low on fluid or possibly going bad.

ON the 2006 impala that whining noise is actually the electronics when you accelerate. Its more or less electronic pulses/signals My 06 Impala is the same.
