My cars making the same noise... I have it isolated though, And It seems like the same story, Sometimes it screams ( as I put it) and Sometimes Shes Quiet as...well as a Bonneville lol.

Well I dont have access to the tool to fix it ( for at last a month, Unless I find my way into a friends garage and Just make it)

But... This is where I was sent, extremely good info...

Good luck... let me know how it goes!

Hmm, that is very interesting and I'll check into it. I'll have to find that special tool and give it a shot.

It seemed to come and go with the slightest of variation in engine rpm. If nothing else works, it'* worth a check. You only have to pull the two valve covers. Check all the easier stuff first, though.

If someone has pointed this out, sorry. But that sounds like your cooling fan, the one on the left side. Sounds like a bad bearing/bushing on the electric motor. Can you disconnect the power to the motor and see if it still does it? Lite oil, like 3in1 shoudl help a bit. But you will need to find a replacment.

No, that hasn't been pointed out yet. I did suspect that as a possibility. I haven't had the chance to go out and look further into it since I took the video. What would be the recomended best way to disconect the fans temporarily? Just pull the fuse? It would be more handy if there was a wire close to the radiator that I could unplug long enough to check and then plug back in. Preferably one that won't get my hand tore up in the process. haha.

Also, if I do isolate this as the problem, how do I go about putting 3in 1 oil on the bearing? Do I have to take the fan out of the car and take it apart or can this be done while everything is still hooked up? Thanks.

I went and checked mine, keep in mind I have a 97, so it might be different. There'* a plug on the bottem of teh fan towards the center. You should be able to unplug it there. I do however recomend you do NOT do this when the engine is running. As for oil, that I'm not sure about, if the shaft end is exposed, a drop or two there will quite it down, but wont fix the problem.

Huh? Mar 17 & Mar 26. Maybe 3rd time is a charm.

Sorry. I don't know how I missed BOTH of your posts about it.

Ihope you are right about something rubbing. That would be a much easier fix.

Rubing is something I did think of, and it'* very possible that'* it. But from what I heard it sounds rather matalic. It really don't matter, the problem is in the left fan.

I hope that is the problem. Something to do with the fan is much easier and cheaper then power steering pumps, air condition compressors and internal engine problems, I would assume.

I'll check out the fan and let you all know what I find out.
