My son just picked up a new 2014 Challenger RT, Hemi 5.7, 6 speed and 3.92's. Starting a bit above 2000 rpms and ending above 2800 rpms it's getting a whining sound, sort of like a belt but not sure. It's not a typical belt squeal.

I used my automotive stethoscope to listen to the pullies, alternator and water pump but didn't hear anything really odd and sprayed some belt dressing with no results. Have an appointment for next week to go to the dealer but was hoping someone maybe able to shed some light here.

Thanks, Steve

If I'm not mistaken, the 2014's have an electric assisted power steering. That may be where it is coming from.

It does have the power assist but even standing still if we bring up the Rpms you can hear the whine but I can't seem to pinpoint where it's coming from.
