*sigh* everything was running so well too. Comming home tonight I thought I lost my alt or my air conditioning compressor. Making a terrible bad bearing noise. Remover the acc. drive belts and no change. Sounds like its around the middle to left side mabey under the timing cover. Rpm variable and loud right off idle. Clutch and tranny don't make a difference. Pitch increases with rpm as well. Thanks in advance...hoping its the water pump or a timing belt tentioner....something other than a new engine
a few minutes under hood and i found something interesting. brand new waterpump and timing belt. with a few metal shavings and a cut down the middle of the belt! all i have off right now is the left cover but im scrambling to get the rest off to find out what the plug has ruined my timing belt!
