Question about 2004 Ford Taurus

2004 Ford Taurus V6 noise underhood appears to be belt

My car began making a strange noise. i initially thought thought it was over heating, it sounded as if water is boiling over. My check engine light is not on. I looked under the hood and the sound seems to be coming from the serpentine belt. The noise does seem to disapate when I accelerate, it is most loud at an idle. Any suggestions?

    Same thing happened to me today. I got home and popped the hood, heard the same noise in the alternator area but after a few minutes it stopped. Now I am afraid to drive it anywhere but I'm going to have to in order to get it checked.

Sounds like a bad idler pulley,or belt tensioner. Most likely not water pump since the check engine light is not on. Altho it couold be the water pump and for some reason (bad sensor, burnt out light) the check engine isnt coming on. Either way it would be best to have it looked at.

You haven't given enough info to diagnose the problem. Did the car die while idling? Could it be restarted? Will it run if you keep your foot on the gas pedal? Etc...
