Hey, so when my ranger starts up and sits at idle it has a faint if any high pitch squeek, like an air leak, or vacuum. The Squeek increases in pitch and and volume as the rpms rise. I have checked the intake manifold and components, exhaust manifold, belts, pulleys, hoses, and still cant find anything that would make that noise. The transmission does not accelerate quickly at all and reaches a top speed of 75 on a good day. So I dont know if it would be torque converter or something in the tranny. Under the hood you can hear the noise the most on the driver side. Could you please help with this, im running out of ideas. Thanks

Try to pinpoint the area the noise is comming from. If you have a piece of garden hose about 2 feet long. You can use that to try help finding the area. By listening in one end and touching other areas you will be able to hear where it is comming from. Be careful not to touch it against any moving parts like the belt. My thinking it that it is comming from somewhere by the altinator or around the belt somewhere, could be a bad bearing or out of place belt, or bad belt.

So I went back to the truck today and tried to pinpoint it, and it doesnt start. The batt was dead so I jump started it and it will turn over a few times and it will start clicking. Then turn over a few times and then start clicking again. I removed the starter and had it tested but it tests "pass". When I had someone turn it over on the last turn over, there was a pressure leak on the 5th cylinder between the manifold and block, the air puffs out warm and you could smell gas. Not sure why it wont start. Fuel pump is the next thing to check. Unless you guys have an idea. Thanks again
