Hi there!

My car developed a stupid whining noise in the right side of the car, that is loudest when the engine is cold, and I think that when the weather is cold too..and the noise increased after change the water pump 1month ago..
Recently I´ve changed:

-Tensioner, guides and chain
-oil pump chain, guides and tensioner
-Idler pulley and tensioner pulley
-aux belt

I´ve been running the engine today with belt off and noise is there anyway.. The only thing that I can think about in this moment is crank pulley with bad rubber in the middle.. after drive the car for 10/15min the noise seems to go away or is quiet...

If someone here experienced this problem please help me!

Thank you all!

Hi Guys

What was the issue in the end?

I have a similar problem with my K20A4 engine on Honda CRV. I have replaced the timing chain and Crank gear and crank pulley oil seal, and now when i manually crank it over there is a squeaking sound coming from the oil pump tensioner area or so. Kind of sounds like something rubbing onto a rubber part. Im too scared to start the engine up again as the first time its started it didn't sound so great..... And what a mission to strip everything again!
