    Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum and fairly new to the V6 Mustang. I've got a 2011 V6 with a manual transmission, 90k miles, completely stock. I'm have owned this car for a few months and I'm still learning about it a bit. The main reason I'm here is to ask about the engine sound. I notice at idle it seems to have a bit of a distinct sound it makes that seems to be a little more distinguished in colder temps. I want to say it seems like similar to knocking, but not at the same time. Can anyone confirm the stock idle sound, are there any good videos I can compare with?

    What maintenance or corrective actions have you or previous owners performed?

    I don't know much about the previous owner. I've only owned the car since August. Its always seemed to sound like this to me. I'm wondering if it's normal. There are no mods. The car is completely stock.
