intermittently 1 sec growling (?) at hot summer

Hello guys

I have 14 GC limited 3.6L 4WD with factory towing kit. (13k miles)

I hear some wear sound from the front & mid-bottom of the vehicle.

- It only happens when car is stopped for a traffic signal.
- It only happens when outside temperature is high and after driving more than 30 min.
- Hard to describe the sound... not a rattling... more like growling... Sound is not that high, but definitely noticeable.
- Very rarely (once a month ?), this sound is high with some vibration.
- I guess it is coming from the engine room.
- It is very short about 1 sec.
- It is intermittent. (not always)

Does anybody have this issue? or Does anybody know what this sound is?
Thanks in advance.

I have the exact same issue. Just started a week ago.
Whatever happened with it?

I am still not sure what it is...

But I am suspecting three things.

1. http://www.wk2jeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk2_1900113.pdf
2. http://www.wk2jeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk2_1100314.pdf
3. check/adjust hood spacers (two rubber spacers below hood, front size around head lights)

I did all of these three... There is still growling/vibration but I feel it is much reduced.

Let me know any update from your side.

If you have QL (air ride) its the air pump.

Thanks.
Justice37: did you ever hear it without AC on?
I need to try to see if I can hear it without AC.

Thanks your your reply. Unfortunately, mine does not have QL. Only auto-leveling suspension on rear, but it does not have any pump.

I never tried without A/C. I always use an automatic climate control.
It is worth to try... but... it is too hot these day...
