It likely has a bad waterpump or a idler pulley or tensioner pulley. Check all three when you replace the belt.

Just changed timing belt on 2001 nissan xterra. I can hear a noise coming from intake cam and slight rubbing or grinding noise for distributor cap. Does this mean timing is off or belt is too loose /t


some of those distributors were pretty loud as far as rattle noise. could be distributor it self, but would not worry about it much until it actually completely dies. could run like this for long time.

Honda Accord metal grinding sound, esp when starting car when cold


A timing belt usually makes a loud squealing noise (like a 'shriek/scream') when it is worn or slipping, not a grinding noise.

A quick check - before you start the car - is to pour some water onto the inside of the belt where it goes around the pulleys. If there's no noise at start up, you know it is the belt at fault (or the metal pulley/s are worn).

There are kits to replace the timing belt (and bearings). Have a look on Ebay:
843results for accord v6 timing belt


If the noise happens before the car moves - it obviously can't be your brakes. When backing up the noise may appear louder simply because your head is turned ..

If the noise is actually coming from a wheel, it possibly could be the backing plate on the brakes - the thin disk behind the brake may be rubbing on the rotor.

However.. a grinding noise ... if it is coming from the front of the engine in the general area of the timing belt be very wary - if a bearing or the belt fails, your engine will be history.

Why not give a mobile mechanic a call? Those guys are usually quite good and a lot cheaper than a workshop

Sounds like something with bad bearings. Check in the area of air conditioner compressor or power steering and yes water pump.even the belt tightener will do that.

My 1991 toyota camry makes a sqeaky/grinding noise during startup then sometimes will make the same noise but consitently at idle until i start moving and get up to about 20 mph


The water pump can do this,You also have a timing belt tesioner and pulley these make noise and are very common,if you ignore this noise you will very well soon end up replacing a broken timing belt,just to reassure you if the timing belt breaks you have valve clearance.so your solution is a timing belt timing belt tensioner, timing belt pulley. and why not do a water pump since your in there

My timing belt was changed 75000 miles ago, its now making a grinding noise, is it time to change it again? Can a backyard mechanic due this project? Is there a free guide for this project?


There is a haynes,or mitchel manual you can purchase for this,and do it yourself,providing you have the tools,and you need to check all the components envolved with the timing belt to ensure there is no other reason for the grinding noise.

Hi, i am using a Honda Civik EK3 1996, recently i changed Clutch / Pressure plate and timing belt, But now i am getting a Grinding sound (very noisy grinding sound like TV channel is not tuned ... ) when...


You may have to do some testing...if it is coming from the belts, start disconnecting them, don't drive the car since you will loose the power steering, but see if the noise still exists. Then if it does, is it coming from around the timing belt area, which brings me to my next question, has the timing belt been changed? Even if it isn't the area of noise; it needs to be done, and the water pump has to be replaced at the same time...location of the grinding noise is important in order to diagnose properly.

Why does my paid off 2000 VW Jetta GLS make a high pitch buzzy grinding sound. Is it the alternator ,transmission,or timing Belts. What do I do and how mauch can it run me. Am I still covered with the


The trick is to take off the belt and spin the different things and see if any of them make the noise you hear.
Water pump, alternator, power steering, air pump, belt tensioner pulley. You could also briefly (30 seconds) run the engine without the belt and see if it still makes the noise.

For prices, you can check autozone.com or partsamerica.com
