When I accelerate from stop, I hear a growling sound. Kind of like bubbles and then it stops. Only seems to happen from stop. No solution yet as I don't know what is wrong.

Rattling noise from passenger front of vehicle. Water pump bearing was vibrating due to bad water pump. Cost me $442 to replace. Sad..

The dealer replaced my idler pully. Still has noise somewhere in the front. Wanted to replace my alternator at $700+. Called back and now thinks it's the water pump! Car has only 38,700 miles!

Growling noise --- turned out to be water pump bearing - my car was purchased new by me in 2004 and I only put 46,000 miles on it! I was told this part shouldn't have failed until 80,000 miles.

First it was in 2008, belt broke and was towed to dealer and was a faulty water pump, but car was already three years old so could not get benefit of a free repair. then car was 32,000 miles. today at 49,000 miles having the exact same problems and it is very disturbing. please advise
