      Yep.

      These things have naturally very noisy engines. If applying an
      electrical load (hit the brake) makes the just off idle noise go away,
      you've got the infamous loose alternator bolt problem. Other than
      that, if it makes you nervous have a competent mechanic check the
      valve clearances etc.
