weird noise

hello to all i'm new to the board

i have a question and it is, i hear a whining noise somtimes it doesn't do it all the time, sometimes after i have been driving for awhile or when i start up, i only seems to do it when the car is stopped and i'm fixing to turn it off or right after i start it. It also only seems to do it when the a/c is on. i read somewhere that it might be emission control. any help is greatly appreciated.

i have a 2001 boxster

thanks

Because you only hear it when the car is stopped, I'm guessing it might be the radiator fan? My car also makes a slightly high pitch(but not loud) noise when the air is on and I am at a stand still......

I don't know for sure with the Boxster, but in the 928 there is a separate fan that comes on when the compressor turns on no matter what the engine temp is. It also stays on after the car is stopped.

I've heard a fan in the Boxster that is similar in behavior. There are several fans in the Boxster system so I wouldn't be surprised.

Does it sound "bad" or not like a normal fan?
