What pulley? water pump most likely. Could be alternator. More info needed. Apply spray penetrant/lubricant like WD-40.

Clicking sound near Idler pully


The bearing in the pulley is a single row ball bearing so you can expect a slight side movement in the pulley. Check the drive belt for cracks. Ensure that the belt is running at the top of the pulley and not down in the groove. Lastly if there is no other obvious problems then change the drive belt

What could be causing a loud squealing noise from front of motor


You have to buy or own a very inexpensive
stethoscope at parts store or online

No other way to listen to things like your
trying to find

You could remove the belt & spin pulleys by hand
& use the stethoscope

You may find that the bottom pulley or harmonic
balancer is worn & is moving the drive belt out of
location causing other pulleys to make noise

2006 ford tauras i replaced batterie,alternator,and belt i have a noise coming for the bottom pulley while i spray wd40 around the bottom pulley only the noise stops what makes this pulley go out and how...


First, if you have sprayed WD-40 on your belt, your belt has been wrecked and needs to be replaced again. WD-40 will only soak into the belt and CAUSE it to slip and make noise.

Then you need to check the alignment of all the belt pullies. The tensioner pullies on many Fords can wear and sit a little out of alignment and cause the belt to rub sideways against the other pullies. Replacing the belt tensioner usually fixes it.

My crankshaft pulley wobbles and makes a weird noise on my 93 prizm lsi


Hi there;
Somethimes this happens over time. It is usualy caused by an oil leak at or above the pully causing the rubber in the "hamonic balancer" which is part of that pully system to fail. If you don't have it repaired you will find the pully will wear through the cover behind it. So be sure to get it repaired.

Hope this helps, Good luck.
Farrout.

Ac compressor. is making a ticking noice


This is normal, the compressor is spun by the fan belt, and when everything equalizes the pulley stops moving. This repeats over and over again.
