Engine noise whinning

I own a used 2011 X6 3.5i. I just bought it from a BMW dealer with 25000 miles. When I accelerate after stopping I hear a small whining sound like a very small blower. It lasts just a second. Is this normal? Thanks.

Uhm, it could be a sign that the thermostat of the engine or radior thingy is starting to fail.

The reason for the noise, it is because it thinks the engine is overheating.

what is for sure is the car is constantly super hot, I can't see water temp, but the engine bay is creating massive hot air, even at idle at a light I can fee it. fan flowing at full most of the time...

i did not think of the thermostat... I assume I'll have to wait for it to break before BMW accept to do anything about it :S

phil.
