Question about 1994 Toyota Corolla
Had timing belt and water pump changed out. Now I get high pitched squeal with cold start up and a slight friction/hum all the time. Is this the belt or the pump........both?
It sounds like who-ever put it back together again never tensioned your alternator belt properly and thus when its cold you hear squealing. The hum could be the belt rubbing off of the timing belt cover if that was also put on incorrectly i would think.
It would be beneficial to have it all rechecked before driving it again just to be on the safe side.
