I got same problem. I tried to start my car too this morning (28F outside), but it would not work. It has that ratteling noise, tried to jump start it and it would not help. Starter or alternator, but I am pointing more to starter tough. Where can we find one cheapest.
thanks

The whinning sounds like the starter is spinning but not engaging the flywheel. Suggesting a bad bendix. Post a sounds clip and I could tell you with a degree of certainty that's the problem.
