The bearings in the water pump are shot. This is why your pulley is shaking and screeching. If you are not careful it will lock down and break the serp belt and will run extremely hot, enough to warp the head and internal engine failure. Get this repaired quickly. The bolts don't have anything to do with the bearings gone.

Grating noise from engine compartment then belt thrown off. Is this the water pump?


I would check a few things before saying its the water pump.I would check the idler pulley and the belt tension er and all the other pulleys on the alternator and power steering pump to see if they wobble or grind because of worn bushings or bearings.Then while you have the belt off free spin the water pump and listen for any noises and wiggle the shaft to check for any movement.If it wobbles and scrapes it would have to be replaced.

2000 Focus Zetec-rough idle, very rough under load.


you haven't said if its petrol or diesel so i'm assuming its petrol since your smelling sulfur sounds if you have a misfire causes could be plugs,leads or ign coil i suspect its ign coil these are common to go.
