i replaced my starter with a genuine remanufactured nissan one from Greg Vogel at Mossy Nissan. it's a mitsubishi unit 23300-63J10R. now when i start the car, it starts up fine but after the engine is running, there is a whine that lasts for 1.5-2 seconds and winds down. it sounds like a motor winding down. could it be the starter motor spinning after it disengages? is this normal?

it's been like this for 1000 miles already. it sounds the same every time i start the engine regardless of temperature or whether the engine is warmed up or cold.

any ideas? thanks

Yes, that's completely normal...all re-man'd Nissan starters have a much higher pitched whining from the motor than the factory ones do. I've replaced tons of starters with re-man'd ones on G's, I's and Q's (Q45 starter=huge pain in the balls) and they all whine while engaging and dis-engaging, don't worry about it.
