hi noticed the last few weeks after pulling up in the driveway and turning off the car there is a whirring noise coming from the left hand side of the engine that winds down and stops this takes approximately 3 to 4 seconds after the car has completely shut off doesnt happen everytime but it does happen pretty occasionally any ideas?

It's probably just your fans slowing down to a stop, they spin pretty fast even on low (normal) speed and just takes a few seconds for them to stop, this is most likely what you are hearing. My car does exactly the same thing, except mine squeak haha :D

I hear the same thing if i leave the climate control fan on, parcelling above the off. when i turn the engine off, it'll switch the fan off a few seconds after. you could also hear a vacuum sound as if the vents are closing.

nothing to fear mate.
