I've had this horrid noise since 83kish and I'm at 114k now a few garages have no idea. The noise seems slightly different now and lasting longer than what it sounded like for a while. It's lasting longer like 5-8 min till the car is really warmed up. I have a 2005 mitsubishi eclipse GTS
It sounds different now I don't know if it's due to the work that was done to it and it caused the problem to get worse not sure. It used to last seconds to maybe 2 min. I just had the tensioner and belt replaced, water pump, pulleys, AC belt, Idle pulley main serpentine belt, plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor. Plus they changed my oil which I usually due myself. I usually use castrol synthetic with a K&N filter so I'm guessing the garage used some cheap stuff because I forgot to tell them what I used. Although what I used didn't really mater the noise was still there but it didn't sound as bad and last as long. I'm going to upload a video the video sucks but you can hear
If you want to hear the noise just go to youtube and type in 2005 mitsubishi eclipse GTS noise. I just posted it today.
have the same problem?
