    d15b - metal on metal noise?

    Anyone got any ideas other than spun bearing?

    looks like it may have got hot as the rad was no longer full (was bashed just before it happened on a rock) when my wife noticed the screetchy metallic noise.

    no water in oil, oil in water.

    I will go investigate when it cools down....

    Is it Auto?
    The trans cooler is on the bottom of the radiator so that may of drained out.
    Could also be a worn out alternator.

    But its all just guessing, Get a video of the sound and people will be able to give a more accurate guess.

    it will be your altenator or p/s pump if its not that take cambelt covers off and have a look. i have had similar to sirge where the idler bolt has been put in on an angle and the cambelt was rubbing on the ballence belt! it fucked the tensioner idler and cambelt. you will have to just look and listen to find the problem.
