2.0ts engine noise
Back in May I bought myself a 1998 2.0ts GTV Lusso as a birthday present to myself. 3 months and £1500 later I consider myself a fully paid up Alfa owner!
Since Iíve owned the car it has always suffered with a squeak from the belt side of the engine but after changing just about everything that moves I havenít yet tracked it down.
Parts changed:- Alternator, PAS pump, variator, cam belt and all associated tensioners, aux belt and all associated idlers.
The squeak is only there from cold until the engine reaches temperature and then is barely audible. After closer inspection it seems to be coming from the lower part of the engine. The noise is not consistent but pulsing with the engine revs.
I have noticed while watching the engine ticking over and looking down onto the crankshaft pulley that the pulley itself is not fitted true. Thatís to say it appears to wobble whilst rotating and Iím wondering if over time has possibly warn the crank bearing ?
Any ideas anyone?
