just had an oil change and tire rotation, now I have a loud whirring noise


Asked by Mar 31, 2015 at 08:25 AM about the Lexus RX 400h

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2008 vehicle. Seems like it is from under car or back seat. It doesn't start immediately but starts at different speeds. I stops before the car stops.

1 Answer


My 2006 Lexus 400H started making noise under the back seat/rear area, maybe where the battery pack is located. The noise sounds like the engine is working too hard and is at the worst at higher speeds and not audible a low speeds. Anyone know anything about this?
