I replaced the timing belt, I alligned all the marks put new timing belt water pump and belt pulley idler
pulley and now I hear noise. I took the cover out and I found that there was rubber around the
tensioner pulley I took out put another one that I see again rubber come off the timing belt and around
the tensioner pulley, I hear like noise can it be the new tensioner faulty or the new timing belt is faulty?
for making noise. I am thinking about putting another belt. Can the new parts be faulty?
there was rubber from the belt on the idler pulley but not alot more on the tensioner pulley

Hi:

Yes, new parts can be bad. What kind of noise do you hear? Does it sound like a bearing in one of the pulleys is bad? Also, check to make sure nothing is rubbing the belt that can cause this issue.

Let me know.

Its like a ticking noise from the timing belt area I put a stetoscope near the tensioner area and its
so loud noise the belt was rubber all over the pulley I replaced the pulley
ones now I am thinking to put original tensioner and original idler pulley
will that help? Maybe new timing belt since some rubber came off on the pulley?

The noise you can hear it like a click or tick you can hear it coming from
the timing area. When you accelerate you hear like a whine might be
rubbing against the timing cover that could be bad tensioner too?

You know, as a test, it might be a good idea to put the original tensioner and idler back to see if that eliminates the noise and problem. As far as the belt, I would need to see the damage to determine if it should be replaced again. If a lot of the rubber has come off, I would think it should be replaced. However, I wouldn't do that until we see if the noise goes away with the original parts.
