Ep3 whining noise!*With-VID*

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!

Comparing those 2 part numbers you listed, the PNA tensioner is found in a k20a3 and the PRB tensioner is found in a k20a2. I can't say if they are different internally though. Considering the issue you're having, I wouldn't point to the tensioner right away. For peace of mind, you can swap out the PNA tensioner for a PRB tensioner.
