I began to hear screeching in my engine with occasional clicking at random times. I thought the screeching was the belt and replaced it because it showed signs of wear. However, the same sounds are still there. There is no leak from the water pump and the A/C does not seem to be the problem because the sounds continue when all air is off. I noticed that the serpentine belt seems to oscillate as it passes the water pump pulley (moving left and right on the pulley). I can't tell if the shaft the pully is on is bent or if there is something else wrong with it. Could this be the source of the problem? What do I do?
