Whinning Under the hood.(kind of long)
New to this world, but see if you can help.
Alright, I have a 95 Bonney SSEi with 100K+ on the ticker. Recently I have been getting, what sounds like, a metallic grinding when the enging at idle. Today the belts were removed, and the car would run fine, ie. no noise while running. If the belt that connects to the supercharger was hooked up, there was a small amount of noise. If the other belt was hooked up alone, ther was a considerable amount of noise. It sounds like a bearing went out, but ????? The tensioner pulley, from the front belt, was removed and the bearing was ok. The double pulley, grooved/smooth, was removed and we found a little play in the grooved pulley, but it'* on the wrong belt to be making all the noise. So I was wondering if you all might have any ideas. Thanks for the help, and sorry for the long post.
