Whining noise coming from engine that increases with rpms however no noise while in parked. sounds like a damn supercharger any thoughts and its not the power steering pulley because fluids are good and no noise while turning.

Have you tried removing the serpentine belt and starting it without the belt on the car? This will help determine if the sound is pulley related or not.

Probably your alternator pulley. To confirm, open your hood with the engine running and put a long screwdriver on the alternator. You'll hear the whining noise more clearly if you put your ear near the handle.

Good luck.
