Re: Engine noise suggestions?

Re: Engine noise suggestions?

Thanks Alexand Rum
I was wondering if a non air con drivebelt could be fitted so that I could cut out the air con to prove the issue?

Re: Engine noise suggestions?

Had the noise for well over a year now and car used daily. As said, with belt off, nothing at all, silent and smooth. Can only mean something driven off a pulley. Stethoscope only picks up noise on the pump, nothing else but as you say weird as to why putting a strain on the steering you hear it cle...

Re: Engine noise suggestions?

Thanks When I ran the engine without the belt on, no noise at all so has to be something turning. I grabbed the pump pulley and couldn’t get any movement by hand. Put stethoscope on pump and could hear intermittent rattle on case but not on Alternator, exhaust or engine sump. Still can’t work out wh...

Re: Engine noise suggestions?

The noise is coming from just below the alternator and o have aircon. The steering pump is under the green top up lid isn’t it? If so that maybe too far to the right

Are all the aircon pumps the same?

Engine noise suggestions?

This s not my engine but I have a similar noise sometimes on idle but definitely when pulling away under clutch biting point. Had the noise for well over a year and engines only done 80k. New belt fitted no difference

Any suggestions appreciated
