Strange whirring noise just started behind clio dash engine runs but lumpy on acceleraction


Possible that you have a vacuum leak behind the dash. That would cause the noise and the run issue. No info in the USA on that car but lots of vehicles have vacuum controls for the heater and a/c. Need to disassemble enough to determine the source but very likely vacuum.

Car not starting, whirring once ignition engaged


Check the obvious. Shift to park (also try neutral) If you jump from the battery to the starter directly if it turns then you may need to replace the solenoid. It may also be an ignition that needs to be replaced.

Check the ignition timing as it appears that the firing order is wrong. Make sure that the cam shaft is turning as it could be the belt broken

When ignition is switched on their is a whirring sound and engine wont turn over.and start.


It sound like the lobes on the starter's shaft have worn down and aren't making positive contact with the flywheel anymore. A "whirring sound" would be the starter motor spinning but not "catching". If it's a clicky/buzzing sound then it would more likely be the starter solenoid, low battery/bad alternator.
The "whirring" sound should still be winding down for just a second after you turn the key off. The "buzzing" symptom will stop instantly when you turn the key off.

When starting in the morning, you have to turn the key and let it sit for about 10 or 15 seconds before you start it or else it will start and then soon die. What would be causing this? 1990 Volvo 240 DL


This sounds like a problem with the fuel pump. Check your fuel pump relay then listen for a whirring noise when you turn the ignition to the on position; without starting it. You have two fuel pumps; the main and the pre-pump. The pre-pump, which is in the gas tank itself, can be checked by taking the gas cap off the gas tank (with the ignition key on) and listening for a faint whirring noise. If the "whirring" noise is delayed you need to troubleshoot these pumps and see which one is failing.

Intermittent non-starting caused by high pitched whirring when key turned in ignition


Hello;
The problem you are experiencing is one of two possiblilties. First, the bendix is weak in the starter. Best course of action is to replace the starter. When you pull the starter out, use a pry bar or screwdriver to rotate the flywheel an inspect the meshing teeth of the flywheel. If there is a section that has worn teeth then the flywheel needs to be replaced.
Thanks;
