Question about 2005 Toyota Highlander
My Toyota Highlander makes a high pitching whirring noise when it is cold out. It is not necessarily when I am accelarating. It is only for the first ten or fifteen minutes of driving. It is not a constant sound. It comes off and on during that time.

hello gwolfson...from your explanation it sounds like the starter motor is turning but the bendix is not engaged. This happens over time and is caused by normal wear. A click or clicking noise would point to the starter solenoid. Don't wait until you hear a grinding noise to replace it, thats hard on the ring gear and flywheel. A NEW starter is recommended if you plan on keeping the car. If not, you can go with a rebuilt starter for around 65 dollars. Of course make sure the battery terminals are clean and secure as well as the solenoid terminals.
Good luck...i hope this helps and will fixya up.
