159 cold start squeak - help needed
Dear fellow Alfistis,
I have a 2.4 159. So far so good, no issues at all. But since a few weeks, upon cold startup, the engine makes a squeaking noise for the first 10 seconds or so. Once I engage first gear and start rolling the squeak disappears and never reappears until the next cold start.
I had the belt and waterpump changed 6 months ago. I took it to the garage for the squeak and they thought it was the alternator - got a new one. Squeak continues - back to the garage, this time they changed the power steering pump. Still there. It's located at the right front part of the engine (seen from driver, LHD).
What could it be? The timing belt tensioners?
Any advice or clues will be appreciated!
