NEED HELP! Engine is squeeling
I have a 95 se with 207k and it runs just fine except for this engine squeel. Let me give you a brief history.
About 4 months ago I replaced the timing chain/gears, did the intake manifold replace, new plugs, wires, cleaned the fuel injectors, all new gaskets, ect. The car ran good up until about three weeks ago when it began squeeling.
When I start it up and it'* cold it doesn't squeel. After the car warms up if it squeels when I'm pulling out or just sitting in my driveway and hitting the gas. It only squeels when I gas it from idle. Once it hits a certain rpm it stops squeeling.
I thought it was the belt so here'* what I replaced. A new Serp Belt, water pump, power steering pump and pully, new belt tensioner. It still squeeled. Than I took the belt off and started it to see if it was the engine and it still squeeked. Than I decided to replace the Harmonic balancer with one from a junk yard and it still squeeks. I'm now at a total loss on what to do next. Could it be that I got a bad balancer the only other thing I can think of is that I didn't replace the timing chain tensioner when I replaced the chain and sprockets.
The sound is a very high pitched squeeling noise, it doesn't sound like a grinding bearing or anything like that. It only squeels when the engine is warmed up and only squeels when it is reved up from idle. IT also sounds like it'* an external noise but I can't pinpoint where it'* coming from except to say it sounds like it'* on the belt side of the engine.
I hate to trade the car in since it still runs great and doesn't burn any oil but I can't stand the embarassment any more.
