    If the engine sounds like a Diesel, I'd think there's something loose in the valve system or camshaft drive or a crankshaft pulley coming loose ot torque convertoer bolts loose.. Diesels are loud. Injectors make only a little noise.
    Here's a directory link, maybe you need to find another shop.

    I thought the dealers answer was a bit much...the complaint was made within the first 6-months of ownership...the vehicle has a 100,000 mile, 7-year power train warranty...I will have to take it to another dealer and get a second opinion, without voiding the current warranty by getting it fixed at a non-participating shop...thanks for your input!!!
