I had my timing belt changed along with the water pump. i have noticed this chirping noise every since I had these items replaced.
constant-squeal/squeak--when engine cold. dissipates immensely when engine warms// i replaced o ring ($2.55)//part on one of the power steering hoses// noise basically quit! but now iam concerned about this idler issue?

Chirp during cold and/or first start of the day. Improves with acceleration. No relation to steering. Resolves after 10 minutes of driving.
My Honda Accord V6 had same issue, where I observed chipping sound after I replaced the timing belt & water pump at certified Honda Dealer. I wonder what is causing this, I did ask Honda Dealer Technician, they mentioned it would cost $100 to check what the problem is. Any ides what causing?
