We have a 98 Escort with 43k miles on it. Just replaced the timing
belt. Before that however, there was and still is a distinct clicking
coming from the accessory belt area (pulley ?). It occurs on startup,
in Park and drive, disappears in neutral.
With the car running in Park, when I use a ratchet to take the
automatic tensioner out of tensioning the accessory belt, the sound
I'm somewhat short of cash right now and have to fix this myself. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much in advance for any ideas!!!!!
