The noise I'm trying to fix is better outlined in this thread.
I put a new Gatorback belt on and that didn't cure it. I put in a new pcv and that did nothing but it needed changed anyway. willwren told me that maybe my tensioner is getting weak so I figured i'd check the torque because I know you can't go by feel and when I changed the belt the tensioner felt strong. The car has 180,000 miles but the engine "supposedly" has only 60,000 or 70.000 miles on it.
I read somewhere that another boardmember had a chirping squealing sound and a piece of his starter housing broke off and was inside the housing causing problemes. This is something I'll look into as well because my starter has been acting funny and it'* worth a look to see.
The best way to describe the noise at this point is that when I hit the brakes in lower rpms or turn RIGHT (not left
) in lower rpms it makes this noise but it sounds as it someone is sticking something metal against something metal that is spinning very fast. That'* why I think a chunk inside the starter housing my be a possiblity because it could be a piece getting caught up in the flywheel. The sound is described better in the thread that that link will take you too though.
I'm running out of ideas on this one.
