Last night on my way to work, there was a quite prominent whining sound whenever I would slow down while in gear (5th was the worst, just about only happened in this gear). Also, if I was accelerating and shifted past 3,500 RPM, give or take, it would briefly make the same sound then during the shift. This morning it wasn't as bad, but it was definitely still there. Should probably be noted that at some point yesterday before I left for work at 9:45 pm, my dad borrowed my car and ended up running over a deer carcass that hadn't been cleared off the road. Couldn't tell anything was damaged by looking at the car, though there was some blood and hair on areas of the undercarriage. Could running over the dead deer have damaged something that's causing the whine? Thanks for the input!
