HELP 04 MUSTANG

Ticking squeaking sound coming from timing belt, pulley area. What's wrong ? No parts have ever been changed. Can it be the belt ?

maybe your tensioner? i'd have to hear it.try a new belt and pulley first.the two combined should be cheaper than the tensioner and while your in there changing the belt,see what kind of tension you have on that tensioner.should give some good firm resistence.how many miles is on the car?it might be time to change all three.

Just saw a video & you're probably 99% right. Exactly where I thought the squeaking noise was coming from the video said it was the synchronizer.

Yeh it's not a bad fix at all. You can try wd40 on it or just get a new cs synchronizer. imo just get a new one it's about $35

a 2-3' long piece of hose/tubing can be used as a stethoscope to help you ID the location....BE CAREFUL!

wd-40 is temporary at best but if you spray something and the sound goes away it was a good troubleshooting tool.
