This is where I realized that I've not been around another Insight besides my own when it is started. But I must ask now because I need to know what is the "norm"

When I start little Astro, there is no actual starting sound, no click...nothing - it is just running. That's not the part I'm asking about. Its after the intial start.

Until it warms up in about 3 or 4 minutes, the sound is a whirring sound...is this the norm?

Sorry I can't describe sounds better :roll:

Mine sounds like that and I have a little clicking as well. I am afraid the clicking is a rod knock and am hoping it is not.

Normal. It's mostly the transmission. It will whirr until the oil circulates and warms up a little. The minimal sound insulation of the car makes this louder then you would hear from most other vehicles.

Yes, I have the clicking as well but only at the first acceleration and then when it warms up, it's gone...along with the "whirring"...
