I would remove the drive belts and see if the noise is still there,if not blame the tensioner pulley,if the noise is still there it's in the timing belt system,don't let it go if that's the case major engine damage could result.

I had to get my Dodge Dakota toed the other day because the AC pulley locked up and slung my belt. I bought a bypass belt but when I started it just has a loud clunk is it battery or starter?


battery's dont clunk ---a starter can clunk --a seized engine can --so can any component in the engine compartment --does the engine turn over --are you sure it was the a/c pulley that threw belt --is the bypass belt on correctly --

Tensioner Pulley is grinding


Remove the serpentine belt(s) and spin all the pulleys by hand. If one sounds loud, replace it.

Loud clunking noise


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.

The car is making a grinding/knicking noise it is


pullys have bearings and the bearings will go bad. what you need to figure out is what pully is makeing the noise and replace said pully. another problem you might have is the power steering pump. check the fluid level to make sure it's not low or dry. when a power steering pump goes bad it makes some noise. another possibale problem is if the car has a/c. the a/c compressor has an internal clutch that will make a grinding noise when it goes bad. To test this start the car turn you a/c on or your defrosters on and listen for the noise in the lower front area of the engine compartment (usually the lowest front pully). shut off the car and look for metal shavings on the pully. for this you should take the car to someone to evacuate the system so you don't release refridgerant into the atmosphere (it is also very flamable) and will need to be oiled with 134a oil and recharged after the repair. hope this helps.
