The whining noise in our 2001 2.2 cavalier turned out to be the a/c compressor. It ended up going out at about 120,000 miles. I would suggest having it serviced. I wish we would have had ours serviced.

If the noise sounds like a power steering whine it could be caused by the A/C compressor clutch bearing or the belt idler pulley.
