I have a 2018 Volt with 5,600 miles. Since day one, when I move the shifter from Park to Reverse or Drive, I occasionally get a whirring/whining sound coming from the engine area. The sound only lasts for a second or so. It seems to happen more when the car is warmed up. No warning codes or lights. Any ideas?

It could be that the sound you hear is a coolant pump for the electronics or battery. It could also be the vacuum assist pump for the ABS power brakes.

Do you set the parking brake? Could it be your electric parking brake releasing automatically? Otherwise i'd say brake vacuum accumulator pump.
