    Hard to tell from inside, I'll make another video from the outside, but one of my coworkers asked me if it's a diesel lol

    Sounds like my 02 did. I kinda liked it lol.

    The sound can be amplified by a manifold exhaust leak. Mine had a broken bolt or two that would cause it to be noisier and more diesel-ish on a cold start (and when it would warm up would tame a fair bit). When I got the manifold replaced later it was quieter, but still had a bit of that sound.

    Yep, normal. Usually quiets down as it warms up.

    Don't worry about it then. Just the way these things can sound.
