Which pulley? May want to check the idler pulley locking nut and loosen it and tighten again and see if it is still wobbly. If it is, you may have to replace the pulley.

My 1998 sebring 6cyl makes a metal on metal noise on the side of my engine by the belts i tried greaseing all the pullys and i used belt noise sparay but it becomes lower and then it becomes higher ???...


sounds to me from the brief description like you have either a water pump rattling, or a timing chain coming slack. Is the noise coming from the alternator? Never grease pulleys, ever. also the stop squeak spray is bad for your belts. Don't know why they even sell it. If you listen carefully you may be able to pin point the rattle. Is this a tick tick tick, or a rattle rattle rattle? Does sound like a water pump rattle or timing chain slap though. Hope this helps

Obviously one of the pulleys is loose or the tensioner is faulty.
I would check all of the pulleys before trying to put the belt back on.
You should find a bad bearing or broken spring.

I changed the serpentine belt on my 99 ford escort zx2 now when I start it it idles low and then kills. I changed the crankshaft position sensor and it does the same thing. I took the crank shaft postion...


Rattling is most likely the original problem. I would say you have a bad bearing in one of your pulleys. Usually the A/C compressor one causes a loud rattle when it goes out, sometime the alternator one will also. Release tension on belt and try to wobble pulleys by hand to feel for slop in pulley bearings. If you find any significant slop, the pulley baering is most likely bad. (Your tesioner pulley itself can also be the culprit) sloppy pulley= bad bearing = drag= load on engine =bad idle and or kill motor.

My villager stutters and cuts off. it always turns back on through. there is also a rattle sound coming from the area where the serpentine belt is. could the belt be the problem


The rattle from the Serp belt is probably an idler or tension pulley.
If the electronics shut down when the van does. Time for a new computer.
If the electronics are still working, (Radio etc.) then inspect the belt for any wear marks or cracks.
If you still feel that the belt may be the problem check that all the pulleys are turning when the car is on (and AC engaged.) If a pulley is locked up it could stop the car but would show signs of the belt wearing.
Another possible cause would be clogged fuel lines or rust in the gas tank. Only test the last one if the electronics and belt are in working order.

Noise when driving & idling, sounds like a loose fan/belt/rattling noise. any inputs? Thanks


Sounds like a rattling noise is a bearing going bad to me.

If disconnecting the belt gets rid of the rattling, I would check for binding or loose pulley bearings.

I have a 2005 Ford Explorer and I am experiencing a rattling noise in the front of my engine when I accelerate. Any idea what could cause this?


There are a few things i would look at, the common problems are the exhaust system may have a rattle clamp or the rings on the exhaust flex pipe, the next is the fan belt area, the ac compressor or a pulley may be worn and loose i would start with these things first, good luck.

Rattle noise coming from belt


this could be a bad pulley or alternator, you will need to remove the belt and spin the pulleys by hand to see which one is making noise, it could also be the ac compressor pulley, start there.
