Hello,
I have a 2006 escalade that whines during start up. Once the engine has started, the noise goes away. I replaced the starter a few months ago. Any idea what this could be?

The only thing I can think of is the starter

Does it make the sound RIGHT as the engine starts up, or just when its cranking? Because mine makes a funny rattling sound too just for a split second, and i want to say its my idler pulley for the belt, since its making some noise that goes away once it warms up.
