Hello, this issue has been happening for a long time (I have a 2016 Pilot Elite), but I've ignored long enough, thinking that it's a non-issue, but wanted to double check here:

The "engine" noise coming out of my hood (engine, etc.) is drastically louder and different when I have the A/C on. I notice it immediately when I first turn on the car, and don't really notice it once I'm driving because naturally things are quieter in the cabin, but the noise is still there when exiting the car.

As soon as I turn off the A/C, I heard the normal engine sound. When I turn the A/C back on, that loud rattle-like noise comes back again.

Is this normal, or do I have to get this looked at?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
