When I started my 2005 Dodge Stratus there was a whine in the engine. this noise continued for about 15 minutes while I drove home from work. By the time I got to the traffic light at my exit from the highway the noise stopped. Any Idea what this could be? the temp outside was around 70.

Possibly belt slipping or idler pulley going bad. And in some causes a harmonic balancer will make similar noise if it's going bad. I would check belt tension and condition first.
