Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It's possible that you could have a problem but I have to question whether what you're hearing is abnormal or not. You may be hearing the vacuum pump or other normal engine noise. Hearing the noise will most likely be necessary to determine if there is a problem and if so, what the source of the noise is. The vehicle is under warranty if you're under 36,000 miles so if you're concerned then you'll want to see your dealer's service department.

What engine do you have?

How long have you had the vehicle?
