Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Alero
I have a 2001 Alero, 2.4, auto, 102,000 miles. This has been going on for a long time, it has just been ignored. When I am in park, there is a clanking noise coming from the engine bay. I cannot pin down where hte noise is coming from. When you turn on the ac it is noticeably louder. I do not notice it in Drive, Nuetral, or Reverse. I do notice that the noise is much louder and makes the car vibrate a little when in park on a slight incline. When you put it in reverse you here a clank and the noise quiets down. I do not get the when I am parked nose down on the incline. I say it has something to do with the transmission, but this may be 2 different problems. Thanks for any and all of your input.
Pull the engine accessory drive belt off and check the pulley bearing and the nose of the water pump and AC compressor for play, this may be the AC compressor pulley bearing or the water pump pulley bearing
