Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
hello . I can assist you with this .
can you remove the serpentine drive belt ?
okay . when you grab the pulley on the A/C compressor is it floppy loose ?
does it spin " free " and wobble , make a metallic sound ?
sir ? hello ?
okay , great !
okay does it have any " side to side " or " up and down " movement ?
so the pulley spins freely and has very little " play " ?
unplug the connector on the A/C clutch . Put the belt on and see if the noise is still there . Also have you " spun the other pulleys ? the tensioner ? also have you tried starting the engine without that belt on to see if the noise is still there ? It can also be the water pump making noise .
okay great . I would appreciate it if you can leave me a positive rating for my assistance to you with your issue . Get back to me and we can continue on further in solving your problem . Kevin .
