Hey there,

I had the hood open today while turning on the car and I'm concerned about a noise and vibration in the engine bay. Perhaps everything is fine but better safe than sorry. Figured I'd post a quick video (just 15 seconds) for a sanity check. Beyond the sound my other concern is the small metal rod in the center of the video. It's vibrating really quickly (even the video doesn't catch how quick it is moving).

Again, might be nothing but just looking for others to chime in.

Thanks in advance.

What you are hearing is the high pressure fuel pump. This noise is common with a direct injection motor.
