Noises problem
1995 Ford Windstar 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles

3.8 L engine.

Was making squeeling noise. Now transitioned to a rattling noise. At first I suspected alternator but afetr seeing belt I think it may be tensioner & pully and/or fixed idler pulley located between alt and ps pump. Smooth side of belt is shiny on 1/2 of belt only.

Suggestions?

I appreciate your reply and I did donate to your cause! Thanks.

Ok what I would do is first look closely at belt routing and see if anything looks out line check first. Next remove belt and physically spin each pulley and feel for roughness, there should be absolutely no rough spinning pulleys, also check ac compressor pulley to make sure the bearings are not bad. Hope this helps
