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.

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

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.
