Engine "Cricket sound"
Posted July 8, 2012 at 11:54 pm
How can I know where the problem is?
Now, let's suppouse there's something wrong with one of the elements, specially concerning the steering pump, the water pump or the cranck pulley, does the engine have to be removed from the van to service any of the above mentioned?because there's almost no space to work to remove or to service the power sterring pump nor the water pump.
Please help me.

The belt path must be true and the belt must be free from any oil or coolant leaks. Belt dressings are to be avoided.
I have also heard water pump seal squeak. A shot of lube in the weep hole will usually stop this.

it sounds like a chirp when it's going bad.
you can change the clutch alone, or buy a rebuilt with a new clutch.
