It seems that your clutch plates have worn out. The automatic gears system uses a centrifugal clutch which automatically engages as the engine rpm increases. If the the plates are worn out, it will make a whirring sound as you rev the engine & there will be a loss of power transmitted to the wheels resulting in slow pick up of speed. Get the clutch plate assembly replaced.........sodeep

Wont start. Starter tries to engage but theres a "whirring" noise instead of the car starting


Sounds like starter solenoid is failing to kick in. The whirring is most likely the starter motor turning, but the teeth aren't engaging on the flywheel ring gear due to failed solenoid.

Could be a possible break down of the plug wires. Seems that I remember hearing if your plug wires are breaking down inside and if its up against the motor you can hear something that sounds like interference in your radio. Just a thought, might want to check it out.
