Last week when it was really cold out my Taurus started making an engine noise when I started it. The noise was a grinding noise and it sounded like it was one of the pulleys. The noise subsides (or seems to) when I drive, but starts again when idling. I looked under the hood and there is oil spattered everywhere where there was none before. A lot of oil is on base of the top pulley on the serpentine belt. I fear it may be a catastrophic problem. What can you tell me?
have the same problem?
