Customer Question

My hustler fastrak makes a very loud whining noise when it starts up. So I turned it off. What could be the cause of it?

Is the noise coming from your engine?

Expert:  Donald replied 2 months ago.

You and I need to determine if your starter is remaining engaged after your engine starts up. If so, this can cause the noise you are describing. We can continue from here.

No it doesn't sound like that. Although I've had to turn the key back a little bit after starting it. I guess the key was hung or something, cause after I turned the key it stopped. My dad says it sounds like a bearing is out or going out.

Thanks for your response. What brand is your engine?
