I would try a search, but I'm not sure what to search for... "noise" is too general.

This noise is not a bad noise (I think), but I wanted to know what it is. I bought the car new back in '96, and every time I start up the car and begin to roll, I hear a deep whirring noise (lasts for about a second) coming from what sounds like the left front. Since the whirring noise only sounds after the car rolls its first few feet, I'm thinking the noise has to do the brakes or the clutch. Does anyone else have this noise? Thanks in advance for any insight.

If you start your car with the brake predal down you won't get the noise until you release it. The noise is the ABS pump which is located on the bonnect next to the air filter box.

This noise is normal. If you don't hear this noise you have ABS you might have a problem
