When you open the hood to your left (the passengers side) there is a belt on a pulley, is this the water pump - the car is making a noise that sounds like a loose belt?? Do you know what it could be, just...

You should only see one belt which powers the alternator, air conditioner compressor, power steering and water pump. Without hearing the sound it is hard to say which component could be the problem. However, If you cannot hear the noise when the air conditioner is off and the noise reappears when it is turned on it could be the A/C compressor. With the engine off you can inspect the belt for damage and make sure the pulley bolts and belt are tight. If a mechanic installed the pump they should take a minute to listen to the noise at no charge to explain the noise.

Clunking noise from water pump side

I would check the front motor mount, it maybe worn out. It bolts to the engine block and down by the radiator bottom.

2001 Hyundai Accent. Heating and stalls

If the water tends to keep going down then there has to be a leak somewhere. Try also looking at the hose coming from the overflow tank and see if the hose might be kinked. You might also be blowing antifreeze out the tailpipe. Take a look and if there is bluish white smoke then you have confirmed that theory,

Where are the flasher fuses on a 1998 hyundai accent?

To left of steering wheel should be the dial to adjust brightness of dash lights, and maybe a coin holder in same compartment. Gently pop it out and you'll have access to area where about 1 inch diameter modular switch is just plugged in under the dash. I have to do this to access my computer code reader connection as well.

I just went through similar problem last month.

Grinding coming from the left front tire area

It could be rust on the brake rotor or the hub may have dry bearings.

1998 Hyundai accent 1.3 engine noise tapping sound

sounds to me that it is using to much oil and its time for a rebuild or replacement. the noise you here is most likely lifters and tappets, when it gets low on oil it will do this, and if it gets to low it will burn up the rod and main bearings. what you need to do is deside what you want to do with the car, rebuild engine or replace, i don't have any idea on price, but all you have to do is call a local salvage yard and get a price on a used engine, and then a shop that does rebuilds. and weight the diiference, i think you will find it will be cheaper to just get another car. i can give you a gusstament on cost,used engine, 400 to 600 + labor, rebuild 1000 to 2000+ labor. remember thies are just guessaments. you will have to call around your area to get the correct prices.
