Singing JTDm 16v
Just after a bit of advice. I've had my 147 JTDm 16v for nearly a year now and I love it. When I first got the car I changed the cam belt, water pump and aux drive belt & tensioners. When I had done this she started fine, but made a sort of resonating whine, but I thought nothing of it and the car has been running fine ever since. The other day a colleague said that the whine was really quite loud and my car was audibly recognisable from a distance away!
My question to you good people is could this noise be caused by something I have done wrong, if so what (over tensioned a belt or whatever)? Further to this it begs the question could it possibly be doing the engine some damage??
I'd be interested in your opinions. TIA.
