Just for testing, a few seconds, will the vehicle start and run w/o the belt? Have a helper work the throttle, is the sound gone? If problem not the belt, check the belt driven accessory. Sometimes you can use a long metal rod of some kind, with belt on, one end of the rod touches accessory housing, the other end goes on that bone behind your ear, helps to magnify the sound. I guess you could use a mechanics stethoscope to do the same thing. Have helper work the throttle while you listen to each. Don't get tool or anything caught in belt. This is a serpentine belt, I haven't looked?
Maybe an accessory trying to freeze up or bad bearing? I can't think of anything else at the moment?

I have the same car and i had the same problems
I did the same stuffs you did to try and figure it out
The answer, my friend is
REPLACE THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER
My mechanic replaced the catalytic converter and WOW, it runs like a brand new car
The car was getting dangerous to drive and now you touch the gas pedal and it goes
good luck

Rough idle


I took mine in to change the plugs and they said there are four O2 sensors in the fuel mixture system and two were bad. I didn't replace them since they were a little pricey ($500 to replace both) and I have 103,000 on the car. Has very similar roughness and occasional oscillations, but no stalling. Hope this helps.
