The oil is brown. Looks normal.

I want to at least put the belts back on and then Victor can do what he wants with it.
Not sure I would even buy it off him now....... :(

What is the routing for the Alternator belt? I got the SC belt back on.

Start at the HB and move it to the rear of the car. It uses two idlers there. After them, it goes up around the PS pump, then up to the alt in a tight loop.

That'* the best I can describe it for you. There may be a diagram on the radiator core support.

If not, it'* in the owner'* manual.

OK, got the belts on and then started it up again.

WTF Now it doesn't sound that bad anymore but the rattle is still there when I rev it. Could that just be the SC coupler that I know is really bad

Here is the response I got back when I told the previous owner about what is happening.......just in case his LIM gasket failure went undetected and that is what has happened to the bearings.
He must have known about the SC coupler. That'* an easy job if that'* all it is.

no I told you everything I was aware of in the car, oil usage faulty temp sensor etc,its been a good car drove it up to when you bought it. did have some pullies changed, 2 or 3 I think theres about 5 or 6 on there that sounds like a pulley noise not engine, I heard the fellow talk about the super charger, maybe? there is nothing to maintain on them? I heard somewhere in the states they rebuild them very cheap. good luck, I am away for a couple of weeks now let me know how it turns out.

I'd say drain the oil and look for sparkle. Then you'll know.

Drain the oil over a strong magnet.

Yup, it needs an oil change regardless. Dino oil on this one. Cheapest we can find.

Let you know in a couple of hours.

Keep your fingers crossed.
