Asked by Matt
I have noticed some abnormal noises coming from the engine in the 2015 Toyota Camry I recently bought. First is when the car is started first thing in the morning when the engine would rev to 2000 rpm and be quite noisy at idle. However, after a minute or so it will go down to 1500 rpm at idle. The second noise is during acceleration is audible when the engine hits around 2000 rpm. The noise is only audible when in gear. I don't hear the noise when the car is in park and revved to 2000 rpm. Can you please tell me what might be the cause of these noises?

Without being able to hear the noises firsthand it's hard to say if they are normal or not, and what might be causing them. It's normal for the idle speed to be high when the engine is first started and then settle down once running is established. The second noise when accelerating through 2000 rpm is hard to diagnose. You won't get it when the engine is in Park or Neutral because the engine is not under load as it is when it's in Drive. Your best course of action is to have a mechanic listen to it.
