    nope, but a failed alternator would... if the diode pack has gone it would leak back quite quickly and drain even a new battery to flat...get it checked out

    yep..it would..

    one way to find out if it's cambelt or any of the other engine ancilliaries is to drop off the drivebelt off the end of the engine and run it briefly... if the noise is there, it's cambelt related.. if it's gone it's one of the other rotating components..
