Its not a problematic noise, it is just loud overall. Compared to my moms v8 explorer, mine is louder inside and out of the vehicle.

Loud as in the fan blowing air? I really don't see how an engine can be loud without it being problematic (clicking, ticking, rattling). What is it that you are hearing in comparison to your mom's explorer????
