It turns out that the PCV valve blew, he had asked me why I was driving it in the cold because that cause the valve to constrict and blow he also told me that the engine noise is common when it gets cold out!
The person in the first blog mentioned that the noise was more apparent in the cold.
Just trying to warn people that maybe this isnt the best vehicle when in cold temperatures ie (-33).

PCV valve - interesting. -33 is pretty extreme. For my 08 Outlander (U.S. market) I think the owners manual says something about the transmission not functioning below -31 until it warms up a bit.
Thanks for getting back with the update.

I test drive the outloander 2009 around the block. The engine sound noisier on acceleration compare to Hyundai Santa Fe.
Does anyone notice the noise? I am referring to normal engine noise.

You comparing 4 cyl. to 4 or V6 to V6? I've driven both cars and I think the Sante Fe is a little quieter overall. The Outlander V6 is not a noisy engine, I've never driven a 4 cyl. model.
