Is it at a high speed on the Highway or just normal driving any gear. If it's around 70-85mph then it's the seal above the windshield. It went away on mine eventually. Push out on the windshield at the top when the noise happens and it should go away. If it's a whine in any gear it's usually the tranny. Considered normal in other wards but you may wanna check your tranny fluid level and make sure you aren't low.

normally if it's the transmission it will make the noise the entire time the gear is engaged.

yeah, i thought about it just being more noticeable with high rpm, but he said it's only between 4.5 and 5
