Probably just the drivebelt/tensioner/waterpump thats giving up, almost never the crank, but do get it fixed asap...;)
(If the drivebelt breaks while running it will destroy the engine!)

    If it needs/drops water its the pump, sometimes it evaporates...;)

Theres a knocking noise we thought it was the tension pulley replaced it replaced serpentine belt replaced alternator the knocking continues its coming from this area of the engine top part


noises are difficult to track but since your's is on top, try this-CAREFULLY use a wooden handle (from a broom, or paint roller extension) and place the end against items on top of the engine-the other end, your ear. Be aware of the moving pulleys and the belt, take your time-you can isolate the noise this way, and plan your next step.

Engine is knocking sounds like from the belt area


You need to remove the belt and check each pulley for looseness and noise when turning by hand. You can also start the engine without the belt on to see if the noise is coming from the engine itself.

yoy could have a bad t belt tensioner or bad t belt pulley. get this looked into right away. you have what is known as an inteference engine. if you lose that belt for any reason, it WILL drop a valve, and your're looking at a lot of money for an job.

The car is making a grinding/knicking noise it is


pullys have bearings and the bearings will go bad. what you need to figure out is what pully is makeing the noise and replace said pully. another problem you might have is the power steering pump. check the fluid level to make sure it's not low or dry. when a power steering pump goes bad it makes some noise. another possibale problem is if the car has a/c. the a/c compressor has an internal clutch that will make a grinding noise when it goes bad. To test this start the car turn you a/c on or your defrosters on and listen for the noise in the lower front area of the engine compartment (usually the lowest front pully). shut off the car and look for metal shavings on the pully. for this you should take the car to someone to evacuate the system so you don't release refridgerant into the atmosphere (it is also very flamable) and will need to be oiled with 134a oil and recharged after the repair. hope this helps.
