Hello, I have a 2002 v6 mustang standard tranny. It seems that when the engine warms up fully, there is a little bit of engine noise noticable from inside the car. It's only noticable when the engine is idle. It sounds like a constant whine kind of sound, but it's not high-pitched. When i rev the engine, it seems to go away. When I turn on the heat - the noise seems to be amplified significantly inside the car. I checked under the hood while this happens, and I really can't notice it at all. :sosad:
I thought that it might be the crappy electric cooling fan - as the fan comes on when you turn the heat on (usually).

Please any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!!

The cooling fan is completely unrelated to HVAC controls.

Run it to the dealer for an oil change and mention the noise.

It's too tough to diagnose a noise you can't hear.

He's probably just hearing the normal whining noises that the 3.8 makes. It's a noisy engine.

Eh, you're probably right - I haven't had the car that long so i'm not used to the noises it makes.

If it helps any, the car has 16,000 miles on it - and i'm sure that it has sat for a decent amount of time :shrug
