1993 mercury topaz GS Engine noise

My engine making loud sounds. 2.3 engine. I changed the bearings in one of the pulleys, I checked the crank damper/pulley, there was no play in it.
After I changed the bearings in one of the pulleys, I left off the belt, no noise, when I put the belt back on it many noise.
Any thoughts

Another guess would be the water pump going bad. That noise can be loud when it gets pretty bad and makes like a metal on metal grinding noise

A mechanic would use a stethoscope to listen for the source of the noise.
If it is a loose balancer, you normally remove the motor mounts and support the engine from the bottom to gain access to the bolt.
It would be advisable to take the bolt out and use some locktite on the threads.

yes you can have a bearing going out of a pulley,as far as you smelling oil burning you could have a valve cover leaking onto the exhaust manifold.

ALWAYS START WITH CHECKING FLUID LEVELS AND CONDITIONS.THIS ENGINE SHOULD BE A NISSAN BUILT V6 OVERHEAD CAM DRIVEN BY A TIMING BELT.ENGINE BEARING FAILURE NOISES USUALLY INCREASE WITH ENGINE RPM.IF STARTED IS SUSPECT THEN FIND SOME MEANS OF ROTATING ENGINE AT FRONT CRANK PULLEY,GRABBING LOWER PULLEY BY HAND AND TURNING OR SOCKET ON CRANK PULLEY CENTER RETAINING BOLT.IF ENGINE CAN BE TURNED IN THIS MANNER THEN THERE IS MOST LIKELY AN INTERNAL ENGINE FAILURE.IF IT DOES TURN OVER THEN LOOK CLOSELY AT STARTER OPERATION.

You are the bestt person to identtify the source of the sound before we can go about a long check list. so open up the bonnet if you think it is from the engine side. Look for possible noise from
1. water pump
2. Alternator bearings
3. Idler pulley
4.AC clutch pulley
5. Belts..Tip Is: try to pour some water over the belt to confirm
6. main crank pulley
Hope you check this out. Helpful I hope. Good day

The engine runs but the belt and pulleys don`t turn. what could be the problem?


The harmonic balancer is broken. most auto parts stores keep them in stock as it happens alot. They call it the damper or the lower pulley , crank pulley, if you can change the belts and have the right tools to remove the crankshaft bolt it's an easy job. shop rate 1 hour less than $100 for the pulley and if your belts are reused thats all
