every day when i start the car in the morning i hear a chirping noise coming from the timing belt area. when the car is warmed up it goes away. or when i accelarate no chirping. strange!
I had my timing belt changed along with the water pump. i have noticed this chirping noise every since I had these items replaced.
Chirp during cold and/or first start of the day. Improves with acceleration. No relation to steering. Resolves after 10 minutes of driving.
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?
When I turn on my car there is an obvious chirping from underneath the hood by the timing belt. When the car warms up, the sound is eliminated. It has been happening for quite some time but hasn't been as noticeable as it is now.
Idler Pulley makes a vibration noise when you step on the gas. Wonder how much it costs to fix it??
new idler pulley had to be installed
