The engine of my Mazda Tribute (2001) is letting out what I could best describe as a "whining" noise when running. It relates to the transmission I believe, as the RPM increases, so does the volume of the "whine". After a bit of driving, the sound fades away. Is it possible that this could be an issue with the differential?

Sounds like it is a bearing issue.
It’s really hard to diagnose this type of problem long distance. You'll need to have a mechanic listen to it to actually isolate what the noise is.
