Question about Cars & Trucks
Starter seems to turn over followed by loud clanking sounds. Fan belt seems fine and no visible problems. Oil is still at good level. Car had been making small noises from area around fan belt the day before. Engine died shortly after starting and now will not start.
Diesel or Petrol?
Any warning lights on on the dash?
Oil pump working ok?
Check your timing belt?

it could be the tensioner .or it could water pump.you almost have to take off belt and spin by hand the individual pulleys. also wile fan is still on and truck is off take the fan see if it moves back and fourth front to back it should have no play in it .because it is attached to the water pump shaft.

a bearing in 1 of the pulleys is going bad

did you check all the pulleys for smooth operation and looseness? did you check that the crank pulley and damper are OK?

Might be the fan bearings are going bad and letting the fan wobble abit on start up. Check for cracked fan blade, or loose.
