3.5L front end belt noise for 1 minute when below 20*degrees outside!...
Anyone ever have this problem before?, It only happenes when it like below 20 degrees outside, and only does for about a minute or so. I have brand new belts(both main drive belt, and A/C), I wonder If I have to re-adjust my belts again, since I put in new belts, they do stretch out after a while. Anyone know about measuring belt deflection for precisely doing it rite with measurement numbers?. I do have a spare idler pulley for both belts that have 30,000 miles on them, while the ones on my car have about 150,000 miles, the only reason I put these back on where because They seemed pretty good still, never had a problem with them on my other motor(3.2L), they spun super smooth, w/ no noise when I checked, can this be that t hey are on their way out?, or...?.
(Note: when this happens and Im in the car, if I turn the steering either left or rite while in park, the noise gets louder, going either way(but my steering is still sooooooOoO smooth) So I think it cant be a powersteering issue, or anything, pulley looked lined up, I triple checked them before I put everything back together when I installed them. Can this be because of the pulley bearings?, belt deflection?(can belt more deflection loose H.P.?). I was also thinking about emptying my resivoir and powersteering system's old fluid out, and refilling with ATF+4, as it states to do so(NOTHING ELSE PERIOD!) in the FSM!. Anyone want to chime in this for me pleasssse?, I have saturday to work on this, and want to get as much info as I can on this problem!, Thanks Very much Guys!, ;)
