Changed 2 belts, and tension pully.
Engine still chirping. It's not constant. Sometimes
it changes with the weather. Sounds worse at 1100 - 1400 rpms. Truck idles around 900. Chirps no matter if the AC is on or not. Alternator is putting out fine. No check engine light comes on. All gauges indicate proper pressure, temperature, and voltage. Cannot figure it out and don't want to waste time and money on trial and error. Sounds like its coming from the center of the engine? Don't think it's the camshaft synchronizer as I don't hear the noise coming from near the fire wall on the driver side.I could be wrong though as I'm not a mechanic by any means. Any ideas?
Thanks very much.
MAYBE THIS WILL AID YOU EVEN MORE....IF YOU CAN READ AND UNDERSTAND IT
I WISH 2CAR WOULD "PROMPT" ALL OF THE VEHICLE INFO (EVEN STUFF LIKE "LTD", "LX", "GT", ETC.) TO INCLUDE TRANNY TYPE
THIS SURE WOULD HELP OUT THE TECHS A BUNCH
KEEP US POSTED....GOOD LUCK.......................SHOULDA GOT A JEEP CJ!

Well, mechanic checked my idle pulley, and it's no the problem.
Possibly my water pump. Going to remove the belt and check to see if it's engine related. Possibly worn, or failed thrust bearings on crank shaft. Which would really suck and cost mucho dinero.

LET'S HOPE IT'S NOT TOO SERIOUS...........THERE'S ALWAYS THAT "NEW WRANGLER OPTION"
YOU KNOW YOU'VE ALWAYS WANTED A JEEP SINCE YOU WERE A KID!
I HAVEN'T SET MY WATCH BACK UP YET, I ATE 75,000 PEANUT M+Ms AND A QUART OF MILK LAST NIGHT, WHILE ANSWERING QUESTIONS..................JUST THEN, 3 TUMS, GOSH ......I LIKE 'EM.......BUT I'M PAYING FOR IT NOW!
CHECK YOUR TENSIONER/ PULLEY TOO, MAKE SURE THERE'S NO "SIDEWAYS" MOTION IN THE ARM AND STANDING BACK LOOKING AT IT, IT IS "INLINE" WITH THE OTHER PULLEYS. WHILE IT'S RUNNING, IT'S NOT JUMPING OR BOUNCING. I SAW ONE WHERE SOMEONE HAD PRIED AGAINST ONE OF THE LARGE PULLEYS (DON'T REMEMBER WHY, OR WHICH ONE) AND THEY "EGGED" IT OUT OF ROUND. THE TENSIONER CONSTANTLY WAS IN MOTION, AFTER A WHILE IT WORE THE PIVOT AND SPRING THEN STARTED MAKING A RACKET.
INSURE PULLEY AND ALL ACCESSORY BOLTS ARE TIGHT, ANY SLOP IN A PART, MAY HAVE METAL SQUEAKING ON THE SHOULDER OF A LOOSE BOLT
......MYSTERY NOISES ARE FUN!
