There's a sound like a bad bearing coming from the water pump but no water coming out of the weep hole. i'm guessing the pump is bad. is this common for this car?


Bearings on a water pump failing on any car is a common problem! The water leaking from around the water pump area is the tell tale sign.........get it checked out and replaced as soon as possible to avoid further damage to the engine.

Rattling coming from front of engine. Comes and goes. Seems like ac compressor or fan?


There is a known problem with the bearing on the AC compressor going out. I had to replace my compressor due to this. However it is possible to replace just the bearing, but takes some know how.

OSCILLATING NOISE FROM FRONT OF ENGINE.REMOVED BOTH BELTS,NOISE REMAINED.SOUNDS LIKE BUSHING/BEARING IS GOING/GONE.WATER PUMP? ONLY 75K ON ENGINE


This could be waterpump or one of the idler bearing guides that support the cambelt. You will need to get the cambelt covers off at the front. These are the big black plastic covers on the front of the engine.

Sounds like you and others are unsure of the source of the noise and until you have verification I would not be pulling the water pump off and hoping that is the problem. If it is a bearing noise it could be a pulley bearing elsewhere.

Make sure you have identified the problem before doing any work. Your car won't be the first that has developed the noise so check with a shop that works on this model vehicle and is familiar with their issues.

If it is the water pump that is faulty, clearly your best bet is to purchase a factory workshop manual for the car and use this to guide you through the process. You can then assess after reviewing the manual if this is something you would be comfortable doing yourself.

Spinning sound when pushing gas peddle, sitting


try it with the belts off you can start it and see if the spinning noise goes away then it's accessory's like bad alternator or power steering pump but dont run it more than a minute or two or it will start to overheat. and if it still makes spinning noise make sure it's not coming from the transmission /use a broomstick against the engine block near each piston to hear the condition of the pistons if there scored real bad it makes noticable diff noise than a diff piston will make. check the front of the engin the water pump sometimes needs to be replaced because the bearing in it drys up and fails / there sealed bearings in a water pump than go make noise . good luck give you stuff to think about.

Grinding noise from passenger side engine

I have a high pitched noise which appears to be coming from front right engine compartment (as you are looking at the engine) which sounds kind of like a belt that is squealing. It is intermittent. Just...


Could be several things. WHICH ENGINE?.. 4 cylinder (has three belts, power steering/water pump, alternator & A/C compressor, one tensioner pully A/C compressor), The V6 2.7 (has only one belt, 1 Idler pully and 1 tensioner pully), the V6 3.5 has two belts - A/C/alternator, and power steering - there are two tensioner pullys). Noises can be caused by the belt(s) themselves, pullys, bearings, pully bearings, water pump shaft bearings (or belts/pullys rubbing up against something). Let's not forget that there is also belt(s) behind the Timing Belt cover as well as pullys and bearings associated with the timing system. You could start by removing one accy drive belt at a time (alternator, water pump, compressor, power steering, etc) to see whether or not the noise goes away in each case. If after each case, you discover the noise is still there, it's probably behind the timing belt cover (idler/tensioner pully, water pump shaft bearing, crankshaft bearing, etc.). Good Luck

1992 volvo 240 timing belt replacement


timimg belts usually don't make noise, they break and the motor stops!! The noise could be coming from a bad water pump, powersteering pump, air compresser, alternater, leaky exhaust, leaky vacume lines. Check them out. Or, I don't know the condition of the engin. Has it been neglected and are the bearing going? More history would be helpful.
