my 2003 Sorento makes a funny whirr- each time I start it up. About 3-4 seconds after the engine kicks over...there is a whirr - like a buzz throughout the car. It's weird - but it doesn't seem to hurt anything :blink: is this normal, or should I have it checked out.

I dont think that it is normal. I have got a 04 Sorento and it doesnt do that. Not quite sure what it could be. :unsure: :unsure: So it does it everytime you start it up.....even with the engine hot and when it is cold? I dont think that it would hurt to have it checked out.

Does your car have ABS? If so its the ABS pump cycling. Its very normal and most people never notice it.

A low-pitched whirring sound happens when I first press down on the accelerator on my 3.5V6 Sorento EX. Could that be the ABS? It always happens when I drive away after starting it up. Otherwise, it doesn't seem to cause any problems.

Yep, definitely the ABS doing it's routine self check. Happens once per trip after 4 mph or so.
