Noise symptoms .. Any ideas ?
My car has started to make a squeak on initial firing and a metallic whine starts around 1500 rpm and disappears about 2750 rpm. It's also more apparent on a cold engine. My Cambelt, tensioners and water pump were all done around 10000 miles ago and a new turbo, so I've kinda eliminated them. The noise is coming from the extreme right of the engine bay so I'm confident it's something on the auxiliary belt ... Does anyone have any ideas going by the symptoms ... Aux tensioners ? Power steering ? Air con pump ? Alternator ? Or any good process of elimination ! Thanks
Regarding other threads, it happens when air con is on or off. Also it's definitely not anything rubbing. I'm 100% it's something running off the aux belt.
