all fluids full? does it sound like a exhaust leak or a internal motor noise? does it happen when sitting still or moving?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I got the oil changed with synthetic oil about 500 miles ago, it sounds more like a internal motor noise to me and I usually don't hear it much when it's moving it's more it able usually when I'm idling, also the rpm is usually around 700 to 900 when idling. Also if you out your hand on the steering wheel it vibrates a little because if the engine e( also only while idling) and unless I'm driving highway nyc city driving I get around 14 mpg. I use to get around 18.
