2016 Frontier 4.0L engine noise when cold
I have a 2016 frontier SV CC with the 4.0L. When the engine temp is cold, like anything under 50 or 60 degrees at a cold start, the engine sounds like crap.
It doesn't knock, but it doesn't sound very good for such a new engine. Once it warms up a little bit it sounds normal, but if you need to jump in and go it sounds horrible under acceleration for the first mile or so. And I'm not talking about beating it or revving it way up, just normal driving.
I can't wait to see what it will sound like if it makes it to 100,000 miles.
Anyone else notice this happening to their truck?
I have had my oil changed at the dealer early every time, actually one time at a local shop as I couldn't get to dealer, but this hasn't been hurt, and has been cared for. This has sounded like this since it cooled off in the fall, probably the last 5-8000 miles? I think it wasn't noticed before due to the warmer temperature. It gets toasty here in SC. lol
