Not sure of the mileage requirement for a timing belt change, but the problem could be multiple things, many of which a tune up would find & repair:
Plugs & Plug wires
fuel filter
air filter
Any of the emissions systems

If fuel filter or air filter are due for replacement, can start there relatively cheap.

How many miles total on vehicle? How many miles since any major work or tuneup? Has timing belt ever been changed & if so, when?

Does sound go away totally when driving? Try driving along side a wall, where the sound can bounce back at you, with windows open, radio & A/C off, to see if you hear anything. Wondering about exhaust system leaks.

Need more information to determine more likely causes.

AC Clutch noise and vibration


An A/C clutch will not make this concern happen, more likely the A/C compressor is begining to go out. The belt on the A/C clutch Assy. free wheels (spins feree on the pulley) when clutch is not engaged. If concern is not present with A/C off this means the bearings in the puley assy. ok. Once the A/C clutch is engaged it locks the compressor against the spinning pulley and turn the compressor chaft and spins the A/C compressor internal shaft. If you hear a loud "screach" when you turn on the A/C it means the belt slipped for a second, if it continiues to screach it means either the belt is loose or that the compressor is internaly locking up. I wouild start by checking the belt tension (if not equipted with and auto tensioner). You can also remove the belt and turn on the A/C and attempt to turn the clutch/pulley by hand, it should turn with a little effect but should not bind or lock at times if that happens compressor is bad.

I just changed a Timing Belt on my 95 Eagle Talon Esi 2.0 DOHC Non-Turbo, I know the timing is correct, as I started the engine before i put everything else back together. Since I got everything put back...


Sounds like your Hydraulic Timing Belt Tensioner, or could be the Idle Pullys. There's a kit available that includes all needed parts for around $150.00 depending on your location.

Rough idle when warm and in gear, idle pulses slightly every now and then, check engine light is on


It sounds like the timing belt is off a tooth. Did you have it scanned to see what code was in the computer? These engines will surge when the cam timing is off.

Sounds like you have an engine miss which is always more noticeable at an idle. When was the last tune up cmpleted on this vehicle?
