Could be anything. Worse/scariest sound I ever heard was from under
the hood of a Prelude like 82? 84? which sounded like it thrown all
the rods, not just one. Worse, because it was a friend of mine's and I
was just about to return it. turns out, I had left it with the (huge)
hood up for a while when I went in, and the wind had slammed the hood
shut and folded the support rod in half, so that the new elbow on it
was just long enough to clang on a pulley.
just had the same failure on my 98 civic.
I replaced the idler pulley several years ago, with OEM parts ($65 IIRC).
This time I went aftermarket, $38.
Be sure not to overtension the belt.
