Engine Suddenly Louder/Rough Idle
Been a while since I've been here. I'm hoping someone might offer a clue as to what may be going on with my 07 Sky Redline (stock) w/68k miles.
Driving in heavy traffic last week, I almost stalled my car (manual, at a stand still, started in second ((wasn't paying attention)). I've never had a car come that close to stalling and not completely stall... anywho, the car didn't stall. Imediately after that, the car start idling much higher than normal (about 1500 rpms). I reved the engine a couple times and the idle returned to a normal range. But, the engine was just louder.... and felt (has continued) a little rough. When I'm cruising in 3rd and 4th gear, the engine is noticibly louder than it was before and feels a little more rough.
The really weird thing is that no engine light has come on.
I took it to my normal mechanic and he said it sounds/feels fine to him, but he has no point of reference. He suggested I take it to a factory dealer/service center. I've had pretty bad experiences at the local Cheverolet dealers. Any suggestions? Any clue what this might be? Turbo is getting normal pressure, and accelleration seems fine. I'm just worried that this could be something that will cause bigger problems (plus I'm not thrilled with the sound/feel).
Any advice, suggestions are appreciated.
