Default The Grizz is alive...lots of pics......

Victor has a long face this morning. :(

I told him, he'* gonna have to learn what to do now.

He tells me he is driving home last night and all of a sudden the anti-loc brakes jam on and now the anti-loc light is on. Then he says it dies and the bells start ringing. It starts again and runs for a while making a rattling sound and dies once more as he is backing into the driveway.
This morning we started it up and it sure sounds like a harmonic balancer to me but then I've never really heard one like this.
Trying to download a video now.

I sure hope he didn't get a lemon. :( I just hate how newly bought cars happen to have problems right after you buy them.

It IS odd how the Anti-lock light is on, and the car stalls with a rattle. Definitely need to see a video.

I think the car needs some tender loving care.
Could be two unrelated problems.

Vid is downloading now.

ekkkkkkkkkkk... doesn't sound like coupler to me. Coupler rattle is only at idle. Sounds like valvetrain :(

Can you isolate the sound to anywhere?

Trying to relate the stalling when all power cut out.
What does a Harmonic Balancer sound like.
This sound has some squealing noises in it that could be coming from the belts.

I haven't taken it for a drive yet but it idles fine.....just the noise.

Run it with the belts off for a few seconds and get a video.

How'* the oil pressure? Sounds like the L67 in the Fiero I had, and it turned out to be 2 bad crank bearings and a blown piston. :(

Crank bearings is what first came to my mind as well.

Oil pressure looks fine with the needle half way on the gauge.

When it happened Victor said he was just driving slow coming back from the store. It wasn't from a WOT blast.
Funny he burned a whole tank of 91 octane fuel and it ran fine and strong.

Crank bearings. ...oh, No, don't say that..... :(
