2014 V6 Engine Whine Noise????
So I was driving home from work one night about a week ago, and I noticed a noise that resembled a "supercharger whine" as I shifted through the gears. It was very noticeable in first, second and slightly less in third gear, primarily through about 3K to 4K RPM on the tachometer.
Iíve got just shy of 3800 miles on my girl and donít recall hearing this noise up until this point. I took her into the dealer last Saturday to have an oil change just to get some fresh oil running through her veins since I was out of the engine break in period of 1400 miles and wasnít sure what kind of crud/debris might have settled in the oil. Once the dealer was finished, I hit the road. I didnít notice the whine sound any moreÖuntil Monday morning on the way to work.
Two things of note
1.) I was about a half quart low on oil a just after engine break in was complete, but topped it off. When I saw that I read the ownerís manual and it said that you may see a small amount of oil loss during the break in period. After topping off the oil it didnít seem to be losing any more.
2.) I saw a little bit of shimmery flakes (metal????) on my the rag after I wiped the dipstick when I checked the oilÖnot sure what this means, but Iím sure itís not good. They didnít mention finding anything during the oil change.
I had the dealer put on the service record that I found metal flake and oil level decrease and retained a hard copy for my records.
Has anyone experienced this? If so, what did the mechanic/dealer say was causing the whine?
Any info is greatly appreciated.
