Engine Mechanical problem
1996 Chevy Corvette V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual 59000 miles
I have a 1996 Corvette with an LT4 engine that is suffering from an intermittent squeak which sounds alot like a bad bearing somewhere in the serpintine belt drive. I can remove the belt and the noise is still there and it sounds internal from underneath the left valve cover. A long scredriver used as a stethescope shows the noise most prevelent at the third bolt back on the driverside valve cover. I have had the car at a GM service center and they misdiagnosed it as a faulty flywheel and $1200 dollars later I am still faced with the same noise. The noise is there cold but gets more pronounced and rythmatic when the car is at operating temperature. Sometimes it doesn't do it at all and even when the noise is there there is no miss or loss of performance that I can tell. Can anyone please help me with a diagnosis. Thanks
have the same problem?
