AFAIK {vIng} has never been used or discussed by Okrand so we don't know if it means to make a high-pitched noise (an engine for example), to complain in a particularly annoying tone of voice, or both.

TREK TRIVIA:
 "Listen to yourself whine like a Ferengi!" (Tuvok to B'Ellana, VOY "Barge of the Dead")

SEE ALSO:
jach 		cry out, scream (v)
tlhup 		whisper (v)
boj 		nag (v)
bep 		complain, gripe (v)

chuS 		be noisy (v)

Probably has been suggested before, but:

Possible pun on "whinge" ? 
Apparently it's possible to use it as a synonym for whine, but I only know the word from forums, where it's been used to describe those who constantly lament about others whining.
