The squeal was the water pump. I came out one morning and there was water under the car. I went for broke and replaced it myself in about 6 hours. It's been almost a week and no leak or squeak from it.
I am now noticing a slight squeak from the alternator now. Could the belt be too tight? I have about 1/4 to 1/2 inch deflection so I don't think it is.
Lastly, I was feeling pretty good about myself and replaced the O ring on the distributor shaft because oil was leaking into the cap. The only tragedy is the little rubber gasket between the cap and distributor broke so I cannot put it in. Nissan does not sell the rubber gasket by itself. They say I have to buy a new rotor to get it. No after market cap comes with this gasket either. Can I use a liquid gasket to replace this? Thanks for all your help.
