When I went back to the shop today they said it was a different tapping noise than the first, even though it does just the same as the first noise did, a minute or so after the engine starts running. It also sounds like the same noise as before to me, but they said it was different. They said this time it is my timing belt and that will run around $350.00. So the jeep is doing the same thing that it was doing that they said was the compressor drive clutch and drive belt pulley. Making a noise for a minute or so after starting the engine, but they say the noise is not the same noise. Would the compressor drive clutch and drive belt pulley going out, act and sound the same as a timing belt going out. Or am I getting the run around.I think I am getting taken. But gave up discussing it with them, cause they insist the noise is different, even though it is happening the same way as it was before, by always being there when I start a cold engine and going away within a minute or so. Just seems to me that these separate things would not be affecting the Jeep in the same way and it sure sounds the same to me.
