    Default 2.8 engine noise help

    I went to see this today and it had quite a naughty noise coming from the engine.

    I can't make out whether it is the chains or something else. It seems to be more of a whine than rattle. I was thinking a tensioner or alternator fault.

    I know its not an ideal way to diagnose but I took this video of the noise. It sounds more rattly than it did when I was there. There is a distinct whine if you listen.



    Any ideas, please?

    Is the waterpump driven by the aux belt? Has that been replaced?

    When I had the waterpump replaced on my z20net, aux belt driven I believe, it came back from the garage with what sounded like an electric motor for a pump LOL.

    Can't tell too much from the video mate.

    But I can hear two separate noises. A rattle and then a whine.

    are you able to get a clearer video perhaps one with some light on as you move around the engine looking for the noise?

    I doubt I'll be going back to that car to be honest. It had other sore points as well as the engine.
