August issue "...whine on start-up"

More of a comment actually. Perhaps the start-up whine is the air pump. Although I think it's activated for as long as 2 minutes rather than 45 seconds, maybe this is the cause of the noise. The duration, along with it happening occasionally at a stop might be a separate issue having to do with whatever it is that controls the pump. Furthermore, if the car is at a light within the first couple minutes perhaps the whining is being masked by various in-motion noises.
