Welcome to the Forum.

 

First of all, I wouldn't call 66,000 particularly high mileage, especially as it seems to have had regular oil/filter changes.

 

Attempting to diagnose a problem from the description of a noise is quite difficult, and you could end up forming the wrong opinion.

Is there any chance that you can put us up a recording/video of the noise - that would help to give you a more accurate diagnosis.

 

There is quite a good chance that the noise is nothing to worry about, or that it is caused by some easily remedied problem.

 

Regards
