First post/ thread so hello all,
Sooo 01 taurus 3.0 ohv vulcan sqealing noise from serpentine area.
I first thought it was the idler pully, replaced and still there.
Belt replaced and nope still there
ok tensioner pully, bought it tried to replace it and could not remove the pully from the tensioner so i figure it needs to be pulled and i dont wanna pull the engine to do this...
I bought a new alternator and replaced it just to rule that out and yup still there.
The major diagnostic is i squirt the idler pully and the belt and no more sqeal.
My research has found this;
Not the sensor on the tranny side definatly serpintine side
might wanna try belt dressing but it sounds so grindy dry bearing noise
I am frustrated and looking for any advice before going to a shop
thanks in advance
