Question about 2006 Ford Taurus

Open Question

My 2006 Tarus sounds like the belt is rubbing or ideler pulley going out. I took the belt OFF and still hear the noise from the engine. It sounds like a belt noise but apparently isn't the belt. Do you have any ideas what it could be? Thank you very much

What is the growling noise coming from my 94 civic motor


Water pump or pulley most likely.

Always replace water pump and pulleys when you do the timing belt.

Also you may have overtightened the belt.

NOTE, Kevlar belts will make a "whirring" noise for a few thousand miles after replacement, but not a growling.

2006 ford tauras i replaced batterie,alternator,and belt i have a noise coming for the bottom pulley while i spray wd40 around the bottom pulley only the noise stops what makes this pulley go out and how...


First, if you have sprayed WD-40 on your belt, your belt has been wrecked and needs to be replaced again. WD-40 will only soak into the belt and CAUSE it to slip and make noise.

Then you need to check the alignment of all the belt pullies. The tensioner pullies on many Fords can wear and sit a little out of alignment and cause the belt to rub sideways against the other pullies. Replacing the belt tensioner usually fixes it.

When you start the engine . i cold hear a grinding noise coming from the engine. most likely from from the belt area.


Hello
Remove accessory belt and examine the water pump pulley. Turn it manually and if there's to much play it is possible that it is worn out. with the belt removed still, check idler pulley(s) and tension pulley. If bearings turn freely or a "dry" sound is hearded, chances are bearing pulley(s) are worn. Carlos C.

You are the bestt person to identtify the source of the sound before we can go about a long check list. so open up the bonnet if you think it is from the engine side. Look for possible noise from
1. water pump
2. Alternator bearings
3. Idler pulley
4.AC clutch pulley
5. Belts..Tip Is: try to pour some water over the belt to confirm
6. main crank pulley
Hope you check this out. Helpful I hope. Good day

Whining engine noise


If the noise increases when idling and reving up the engine then you must check on the engine pulley, the belt idler pulley, the water pump , alternator or the a/c. But if the noise increases when you are moving then you must check on the wheel bearings, the drive shafts and the inspection of the mudguards for tyre rubbing. If so you will have to jack up the car and check for faulty bearings, drives or tyres. SInce the noise can be traced to the point of generation , you will have to have a friend also to check on one side for pinpointing the sound and identifying the part. This must be easier to find and you can easily replace/repair/change the part concerned. Hope you try. Good day

Try removing the serpentine belt (make sure you have a diagram or draw one) and checking that all the pulleys and accessories spin freely without noise or resistance as a starting point. Keep it simple first if you're going to start by ruling things out.

I hear a noise coming from the serpentine belt area. Sounds like a bearing. I just put on a new belt and the noise is still there. The tensioner seems to be working fine. What could this be?


Each pulley is has a bearing. The best way to check it is to remove the belt and spin each pulley, (except the crank pulley wont spin) and listen to each one normally a tensioner pulley or idler pulley is the problem. Note: not all pulley will turn with the exact freeness in feeling, for instance it will be harder to turn the power steering pulley than it will to turn the ideler pulley but just listen to the noise. If you got a bad one it will sound like grinding rocks. Good luck.

Belt noise when first starting engine


Don't use a "belt dressing"...

There may be oil or other substance on the pulleys.
Remove belt and clean all pulleys .. inspect belt for contamination from those pulleys.

That should do it!

Drive Belts Squeaking


First off, how many miles do you have on this engine?Since you changed the belt and still have the noise,you have one of your pulleys making this noise.Usually it's the ideler tensioner pully.Take the belts off.Turn the pulleys by hand including the alternator pulley.if you hear the slightest faint noise there's your problem.repalce the part or the pulley. A lot of times the alternator pulley does this,the front bearing or the rear bearing as well will make these nasty squeals.Find an auto electric shop that rebuilds alternators and have them replace the bearing for you,while your at it service your unit,it will save you in the long run.

Engine whinning


I had the same problem on my 2005 Envoy. Turned out to be the idler pulley bearing. It is just a pulley the belt rides on. The bearing in the pulley was what was making the high pitched whine. I replaced the bearing, and the noise went away.
