I've recently discovered when my car runs a few minutes before leaving my work. It hums(Idles) like a diesel engine. I checked my oil which is good. Belts are all good. I just can't figure it out.

BTW It takes Regular Unleaded, not a diesel engine.

Here's a video of what it sounds like, couldn't record my own. camera wouldn’t pick it up

I'm 16, this is my first car and love it want to take good care of it.

my "96 960 sounds just like a diesel.

my "96 960 also has a sound at idle like a knock/tick..that video (audio) is great. that is a hard sound to describe. mine isn't quite as loud as the video, but mine sounds just like a diesel car. valves ?, leaks ? It has power and runs smooth. just did fresh oil, filter, air filter, spark plugs, serpentine belt, oil cooler lines. HELP!!:confused:
