When I start my 95 900 2.3 there's a sound from what appears to be the front drivers side of the engine compartment that's a high pitched whine kind of like a vacuum cleaner. It runs for maybe ten seconds, then shuts off. I've been scratching my head trying to figure out what it is... can anyone help? Pure curiosity behind the question, it runs fine.

Mine did as well, but his is more than likely the secondary air injection pump. It's an emissions aid and runs for anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes when the car is cold.
Must be this as it's clearly something that's turning a lot of RPM's. Definately not the wipers. Thanks for the info.
