Ok here goes....
I am starting the car from cold and only from cold i get this noise, the sort of noise you get if the starter is playing up and not releasing, a sort of squeal/grind,it lasts for about 2sec's and then ok, but it is coming from behind the cambelt covers.
Had this noise since i bought it but not tracked it down.
Anybody else got it and if so what is or was it?
Cheers speed freak i can sleep tonight not.
I have chance the belts and the tensioners but not the pulley.
Guess I'll have to try and get her in door's to start it up with me under the bonnet with my trusty wooden rod and try and listen for it.
I've developed this noise in the last couple of days, but for a while now when I have started from cold it sounds like I have a crow under the bonnet- not too loud but a strange squalking noise. I'm thinking aux belt? but haven't had chance to get it looked at yet (or the money). Had my cambelt etc done last year.
