V6 Engine Sound Level
 
Just wondering...when outside my Jeep I noticed that it isn't very quiet when idling. There is an occasional whistling sound near the front grille which I want to have checked out at some point, but otherwise the engine and exhaust just sounds louder compared to other new vehicles I've had in the past.

From inside it's pretty quiet unless I'm pushing the engine, but the exhaust and engine note when pushed is not a problem.

For others who have the V6, do you find that it's quiet or not?

Nothing unusual here.

If it's the whistling of having the A/C operating and engine RPMs between 1000 and 2000 RPM, there's a thread on it in the troubleshooting area.

However, I like the sound of the engine. Sure, it's no rumbling V-8, but it sure isn't bad. From inside the vehicle it's nice and quiet, but when walking up to it (having used remote start) it has a good throaty sound all its own.

Love the sound. May be the best sounding V-6 I've heard. Bruce

Good sound but always can use some more. Sometimes it has booming little too much.

Yep, very noisy. Personally, I don't like how it sounds. It sounds broken.

Mine is pretty quiet. Much quieter than the Hemi in my 05.

From outside mine sounds smooth, with just a low rumble note depending on the listening position. From inside, quiet except under heavy throttle (and a little more interior noise under WOT with the K&N drop-in air filter). Of course, its not Hemi sound.

That is because you have the wrong engine in your WK2. I have a 3.6 instead of your 3.7 ! :lol::lol::lol:

Engine is very nice. Very quite in normal driving.

You got me:slapfight:

I changed it. Thanks for pointing that out. Look like a douche with the wrong engine on my profile.

I'm new to the whole jeep thing. This is my first Jeep.
