2000 Pontiac Montana Question: Tinny front of engine noise

Could it be water pump or timing belt problem? Thanks -
Answer 1
yes and yes. Have it checked out very soon, if something fails, it can do some expensive damage. Consider the sound a very important warning! -

Bret, turned out to be air-conditioner pullies not used in Michigan for a while. They told him to just put the air on at the lowest level and let them adjust. What a garage they are!!! Regardless, I told my brother to replace the water pump and timing belt anyway. They didn't charge him anything for their advice. -
Answer 2
another possibility is the belt tensioner. if it makes noise too long, then it just flys apart. -
