Default overdrive whining noise

i have a 95 olds achieva with a 2.3 quad four automatic transmission

when i am driving and put the car in gears 1,2,or 3 it is all normal but when it enters overdrive it seems to make a whining niose
it only happens when driving not when revving the engine

any ideas??

i have no idea but when i hit that 4th gear at about 35mph there is a noise i was thinking it is a cat converter but there are no symptoms of it, so now im thinking a wheel bearing, but i am just kinda troubleshooting similar sounds
