Wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this knocking/clacking noise on my 2011 Santa Fe 2.4L with 143k miles. It's been doing it for atleast a few months, potentially even started after the dealer did the #966 recall a few months back for the knock sensor update to detect engine bearing noise but that's just pure speculation. I am really hoping its not the dreaded bearing rod knock. It goes away/is unnoticeable after the revs pass 1250rpm and the engine runs very smooth and has no power loss. Planning on switching from M1 0w-20 to M1 5w-30 on next oil change to see if it helps. Also going to pull off the drive belt to see if elimates the noise. If it is rod knock, would Hyundai cover it or is the 2011 not in that group?

now you've made me need to go listen to my'18 which has always had a tick, dealer said normal but don't really trust them and now I'm at a crossroad of either trading in this winter or keeping with 24k miles, thanx for the video/sound
