I want to buy this car, but am hesitatant because when I took it for a test drive it had a whining noise when I excelerated. It sounded like the noise I would make with my grandson when I was playing cars with him. Is this something bad or normal?

1998 Nissan Maxima bluebird? did not bluebird end in 1994? ill answers for 1998 USA, if car is a JDM , well that be different
you have idle surge, (aka hunt) the ECU controls idle at all times. there are 10 or 2o things that can cause surge. many tests. are you up for tests and buying tools, or just want a wild guess>? 1: EGR mains stuck open. 2: ISC stick (electric idle valve) 3: TPS switch ,not closed, at idle (that kills idle controls dead 4: lean AFR. and ISC has lost control or makes it hunt. 5: intake air leaks. 6: ECU in limphome. the USA cars (no location stated, bad) all usa cars have OBD2 this year, ever use a $7 scan tool yet? CEL stuck on running. never pulled the DTC errors?
I had the same problem with my maxima and the alarm I replaced my starter and haven't had any problems with it yet and my alarm is back and up running as we'll so I would start with your starter.... I took mine to the auto parts store tested great because it decided not to act up at the time....but dead again all the sudden.... took starter out it was shot and put in the new one fires up everytime now alarm works great hope this helps
