I've been driving my new 1998 2.4 V6 SE today and when you're cruising along at low revs, you can hardly hear the engine, however I put the windows down to hear the engine and when accelerating, the engine sounds kind of raspy, almost metallic.
Is this how it should sound? It's almost got a bit of a VW Beetle sound to it, but obviously a deeper growl.
It's done 155k Miles BTW, so I wasn't expecting it to be whisper quiet.
I've had an oil and filter change... Gonna get my cam belt/aux belt and water pump done next week.
I've never driven a V6 before, so I don't really know how they're meant to sound!
