1998 Ford Ranger 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 134000 miles
Recently my power steering pump seized and it was replaced with a rebuilt one. Since then, there's been a minor cricket chirp coming from the area of the belt & pulleys. It occurs only when cold and goes away when the engine is warmed up. It occurs more rapidly with accelaration. The belt was changed 3 months ago, before the pump seized, and this sound was not present before the new pump.
This is such a minor noise that I thought I'd take care of it myself. Also, it seems to be getting better with time.
What should I do to silence this? What type of magic spray can I aim at these pulleys?
have the same problem?
