See if you can pinpoint where the whining noise is coming from.

After checking it just sounds like its from the engine kinda maybe narrowed it down to ether starter, crankshaft position sensor (since recently a coolant tube leaked and sprayed scolding hot coolant all over it ), or possibly something in the header area. Like I said radio and lights work but when i go to turn it on it seems like its on the edge of turning over but never does and sometimes during this there is a misfire type sound. I just cant for the life of me figure it out.
