1.8 tt I recently changed the timing belt, water pump, belt tentioner and pully, thermostat with housing. I start the engine and no problem drove it around to get the new antifreeze into the block then topped it off agian. When the engine warms up I get a loud noise coming from the back of the engine. I thought it was from the power steering fluid, I topped that off. I know I did the timing belt correctly because I hand cranked it at the crank shaft pulley 4 times around (no noticable metal hitting each other)I set the cam at the cam timing mark and counted the 68 teeth to the crank pulley as discribed in bently. Marked the belt and installed. Noise goes away when I accelerate from idle while sitting in the driveway. I thought that I may have the timing belt rubbing the cover but thats not it. Could I have air in the power sterring system?
