This is a long shot stab, but worth looking into. There are rubber bump stops under the hood, the hood rides on these and after a while they get dry, When they do they squeak and make all kinda of noise, it`s just a piece of rubber on top of what appears to be a bolt. Coat them with vaseline or the like and see if the noise disappears. 500 rpm is a rather low idle, I`d think it needs to be at least 600 to 700 RPM.
