and very loud to boot.
there are 2 easy ways ( fan belt is first and done , removed)
a rubber hose to the ear lets you find the source. near free.
a stethoscope for $5 at HF will do so too.
start with the hose and listen all over, you will find the source.
top , bottom, left right, front ,rear.
sounds like air/exh leak to me. but , im not there.
surely the hose trick to ear at a 4 exh ports. is in order.
if stock exh, lots of places on exh. to leak.
even riser ports.
tricks , run with out air cleaner
or those 3 paper air tubes pulled off.
oil PCV beather hoses pulled.
make sure disty rotor not wrong for motor (some have huge bottom hole
and is dead wrong or not seated all the way down)
look under disty cap for rotor wear marks under cab (bad)
nice vid. way to GO THERE.
Candy, my car makes this noise too, it seems to go away when the temperature is cold. But it comes and goes, sometimes it's loud and won't go away while other times, like today, it didn't make any noise. I'd imagine that it's fan related. I replaced my Alternator in Novemeber and the noise is still there.
