Well a place to start is pull off the belt and spin the Idler, Tensioner, AC, Alternator, and Power steering, Smog pump (if equipped) pulleys all should spin easy with no noise. Does the sound go away or change when turning on the AC? Also start the car with the belt off to make sure the noise is not coming from the motor. If noise go's away then it has to be one of the items I mentioned above. Cost will be depending on location and type of part gone bad.
hi power steering and alternator belt tensioner is located on top near alternator and aircon belt tentioner is located at the front of engine covers down by radiator fans, hard to see and tight to get into
look at the bottom pulley where the belts go, check for wobbly pulleys while engine is running.look for inward@outward movemant of bottom pulley. the harmonic balancer may be going bad. hope this helps!!!
I'll sort it out for ya!
The engine has the spark plugs
O O O O
1 23 4
and the dizzy has contacts 0 0 <- my pic of dizzy contacts
I'm no artist but this looks like a golf engine and dizzy drawing to me.....
Anyhow the dizzy looks like this 1- 0
the 4 contacts... 2- 0 3- 0
Number 1 plug is furthest left of the engine.
Number 1 plug on the dizzy is the "top" contact furthest back of the car
Number 2 on diz\zy is the LEFT most contact
Number 3 on dizzy is the Right most contact
Number 4 in dizzy is the Bottom (nearest front of the car) contact
Hope this helps -
Leave feedback good or bad.
most of the time when a pump goes bad in starts to leak after you shut off the engine. May not be much and it may or may not leak enough to see it on the ground. Look around the water pump and see if you can see any wet spots and look at the water pump it self and it has weep holes one on the bottom and top see if you see any leakage from there if so the pump is bad
The firing order is 1, 3, 4, 2. If all the leads have been pulled off the dizzy cap, you'll have to remove No 1 spark plug (leave it threaded into the plug hole by 1 turn) and the dizzy cap. Turn the motor over by hand in the clockwise direction and listen for air being forced out of the No 1 plug hole. When you start to hear that, it means you are approaching TDC on No 1 cylinder. Now look at the front crankshaft pulley and stop turning the engine when the mark on the pulley is close to the marks on the timing belt cover. It doesn't have to be exact (unless you've removed the dizzy). Now where the dizzy rotor is pointing is where No 1 lead has to be fitted. Observe the direction of rotation of the rotor and the next point it comes to will be where you fit No 3 lead; No 4 lead next; and finally No 2 lead.
The fan motor can be checked by using jumper wires. remove the wiring connector from the fan.Run the positive wire from the battery to the positive on the fan and the ground to ground. It should turn smoothly and at normal speed at 12 volts.If it is slow and noisy, the bearings making the noise. This indicates the motor is bad.
