hi everyone,

i am new to this forum. i want your advise on a killer deal i am having on a 2000 Carrera. the car has only made 60,000 KM (40,000 miles). i took the car for the last weekend to decide and noted the followings:

1- whining sound from the back end @ 70-80 km/h (45-50 miles/h) the whining then goes away

2- at full stop, the idle is not perfect and the car slightly vibrates

3- at full stop, some front end noise when swinging the steering wheel

beside the above, the car feels perfect.

what do you think of these notes? are they critical? what are the possible causes and solutions?

thanks in advance,,

KJ

the whining sound at those speeds might just be the rear spoiler going up automatically

the car has a fixed spoiler,,

when i got off the car and checked the rear tires, i found them of different patterns and sizes; can this be the problem?

The other members could help you better once they are up. what about the engine lid fan? As I was looking for a 996

I came across a 99 guards red that had this loud whining sound that starts from the moment you start the car till its warmed

up couple minutes later. Never excatly found out what it was cause I walked away from that one and got another with no

weird noises. But I had a suspicion that it might have been the fan causing it.
