My FORD E250 SUPER CARGO van makes a strange, whine when accelerating. It is

Could be several different things. Could be transmission, wheel bearing, tire issue or rear end issue. Might want to have some one look at it a little closer before it lets you down.

Sounds like a Pinion Bearing. Growls all of the time, louder when accelerating, changes when decelerating, a road- speed sensitive noise that is no different no matter which gear regardless of speed. Wheel bearings are usually speed sensitive and there's usually (but not always) an axle seal leak. Transmission noises will change with gear changes.
