Is it me or is there more blower noise than engine rumble, especially at lower revs? Never really noticed it before.

Blower noise?? Do you have a supercharger? I think you're hearing the VANOS system whine that some folks have reported.

Dan,
Yes but it's not a "blower" as in supercharger. It is the radiator fan, I believe. It is worse with the AC on. It does not do when the car is cold.

I have this happen to me the other day. I heard the noise and when I turned off the fan it went away. Hasn't returned yet. What can one do about it?

If you haven't noticed, there are two fans in front of the engine : one big working all the time and one smaller only on when engine need to fresh air. It typically starts running when you suddenly stop in traffic and the engine temp starts to increase, then when you are normally driving again it turns rapidly off.
Work 1-2 minutes only, that's normal.
