Squeaky noise?

Hello, I have question, my 98 Sreg 146Ti has developed a squeaky noise on start up. It lasts about 2 minutes or a few hundred metres and then its gone. It seems to be coming from behind the steering wheel in the engine bay. I recently had a new power steering pump fitted, could it be anything to do with that?

Re: Squeaky noise?

Could be a tensioner or a belt?
On start up, squirt a little bit of water on to the belt, see if the noise goes away.

Re: Squeaky noise?

probably the idler, if you have aircon there is the tensioner and another idler, up near the PS pump. You shoul be able to see it by peeriing down past the cam cover, and squirt some water down there.

If you don't have aircon then there is no idler to worry about, but the problem may just be that it needs bleeding.
