The noise does not seem to be coming form the alternator, but it was so noisy on the pulley above and below the alternator. The pulley below was wiggling a bit, and when the motor is off it is the only pulley that has any play in it. I don't know what that pulley is for though. The motor sounds like a diesel, but again, no performance issues. Looking at the motor from the front of the car, on the left you have a pulley up top, I think it is the water pump, then to the left and lower is the alternator, and then almost level but to the right is another pulley. This is the one that is moving a little bit and the one I think is making the noise. Is it ok to drive it like this? Do you have any ideas? Thanks for your response and help.
