Noise from pulley possibly dur to poor lubrication
Three months ago, I bought a can of belt dresser and sprayed
quite some on both sides of the belt when the engine is running,
hoping this will make the belt run smoother and last longer.
Suspecting that the pulleys may be subject to crust or loss of lubricant,
I also sprayed the WD-40 around all the shafts of the pulleys.
After some days, I heard the rattle (click,click....or chirping) from
that region. Af first I doubted that this noise may be from the
notorious synchronizer. Now I am pretty sure that the noise is from
one of those pulleys. I worried if the WD-40 will wash away the
lubricating grease which is applied inside that rotating part when
the car is made. What grease or lubricant is good for use to
restore the lubrication of those pulleys if lost?
Thanks a lot
