The belt may be rubbing against the plastic guard...look around the guard area for very small particles of rubber...if none found, then it wont be the problem

My 1984 mustang only has 60,000 miles. When i put my car into drive I hear a loud noise coming from the engine. it has enough oil, its not the brakes, or driving belt. the car drives fine, like nothin


Not much we can do without knowing where the noise is coming from. It could be something rubbing because the engine is shifting. It could be moving around when in drive such as a weak motor mount. Or the crankshaft could be moving under load.
You may need to have a friend watch the engine from the side to see if anything is changing when you go from park to drive. You can also use a section of hose as a hearing device to pinpoint where the sound is coming from.

Tip

Squeaking of belt noise


A use tip for all car owners. no specific model/make.

The Belt of the a/c to the solenoid pulley or the main belts can create a lot of squeaking noise.
Start the car to hear the noise now pour some water into the belt and the noise will subside off . You have the noise confirmed of a belt as sometimes it will trick you to think of water pump bearings, alternator bearings or even engine noises.
Stop the engine and check for play in the belt if so tighten the belt If not use some chalk power or candle wax to be rubbed into the belt that was making the noise - the a/c drive belt - or the main belts..
Now start and check . the nosie would be reduced or gone.
You can have the belts changed sooner or later.

1992 saab 9000 weird noise then engine shuts off


Remove the water pump belt. Start and see if the noise is gone. If the noise is gone you have a bad component that is driven by the belt.

Engine noisy when idling


It could be faulty fan belts, pour some water while the engine is idling into the belt and observe if the noise has lessened. In such case switchoff engine use some wax or chalk to rub into the belt. this may be a relief for some time.
further it can be fault with the idling pulley, the water pump bearing also can make a noise at lower RPM.

There's a chirping birdlime noise when the car is


Sounds like your serpentine belt is dried out.Replace your belt make sure belt tensioner is ok,or you can make sure that it is your belt by using a old candle or belt dressing that you can purchase from your local parts store.While engine is running VERY carefully touch the candle to the ribbed side of the belt and let the wax rub off onto the belt the squeak or chirp should change or go away.Or just spray the belt dressing on per the directions on the can.

Rattle noise from tensioner and pullys aera when engine is idiling and warm


Take a candle and rub all belts, do NOT get your hands stuck between the belts BE CAREFULL or use silicone spray. Try this first, sometimes the belts dry out and make noise, other wise the idler pully bearing is at fault.
