Pulleys

Will any of the pulleys make a tick sound if they are bad. I have a tick and it's said to be a lifter but my car runs strong and everything I just don't want to spend a 1,000 of its something simple

Re: Pulleys

My idle pulley on my blazer ticks bad. You can try spraying wd40 on it to see if it quiet it down any. Mine wobbles sideways (heard it was bearing to idle tensioner) Get stethoscope and listen for lifter. Just be careful around moving parts.

Mine ticks at 2500 rpm until shift in every gear or I can be at lower rpm and let off gas and it will tick a little bit

Also if I gas on it hard it will won't do it

Re: Pulleys

try running 10w-30 and see if the noise goes away. I run 10w-30 always, although ford recommends 5w-20, I have never had any problems but I run royal purple also lol.

Re: Pulleys

My grandmas Monte Carlo has made that noise for 9 years. Never set a cel, never missed or anything. Its embarrassing tho. Mechanic said it would run like that forever and her being a tight wod, she'll run it like that forever. Yours does sound louder. Good luck

Did you try lookin under the hood while its running and giving it gas?..a bad idler pully could tick at certain rpm's then under load disappear..if it's bad it's only a matter of time before it binds up and throws your belt!..or just give all your pullies a good check with the eng off..

Idler phillies are known for going out in these things!... Plus looked like your engine light is on!.. Might want to run a scanner on that!..

Re: Pulleys

naw, thats not a pulley although they are bad about going out on this cars. Thats either a lifter not priming, the small spring inside of the lilter has broken, or slight chain slap on the guides. A buddy of mines did the same noise and it was the chain barely slapping agaisnt the guide but only at a certain rpm would it do it.

I would Take out a qt of oil and buy lucas oil stablizer from autozone or etc, it will help a lifter thats not priming. I know because I had one stick on my and not prime when I built the engine.

You can change the idler pulleys but I dont think thats going to fix your noise

Okay I'm thinking it's a pulley because when I'm sitting I can go up to 1700 rpm and it will barely do any ticking but if I cut the air on at the same rpm it ticks like crazy.

That sounds more like a pulley to me!.. Because your putting more of a load on the pulley with the AC on!..

Re: Pulleys

If the pulley is that bad just start your car and you'll probably see it wobbling. Good luck

Re: Pulleys

lucas oil stabalizer...its in a white bottle. You can use the synthetic type in the black bottle as well its not as thick as the stuff in the white bottle but both will work...
