After the car has been sitting overnight, a continuous loud squeal is present when driving car from parking spot, then has a loud single squeal when stopping. This sound goes away when driving at normal speeds on the road. The squealing sounds like the rear tire axle rotating when the rear wheels are turning. I've had my rear sway bar links replaced but the squeal is still present.
I am replacing the water pump on my 2001 pt cruiser. I purchased a new tensioner pulley as mine was worn. after installing it and replacing the belt I noticed if I pushed on the tensioner the outside ring moved back towards the engine block. I didn't notice this on the one I took out and the new one is shaped different than the original one. Is this normal?
