In Topic: Noise From Belt, Water Pump Pulley

16 April 2015 - 10:39 PM

To make things easier I have created a YouTube video:



Can someone confirm that it is the water pump pulley and if the issue is what I have described?




Is it just me or does the bigger pulley look like its wobbling something fierce?

Sent from my iPhone 5s.


yes it looks like the water pump pulley does have some play in it in one form or other.



I think the best bet is to change the pulley/water pump if you think it is that. also as mentioned above add a new drive belt as well so all is new in that area.

yes I agree with alex on this one if its the bearings a new pulley and belt would be the safest option.

I love the petrol engines and I think the new ecoboost are a great design in terms of moving forward with car technology.
I get about 42 -48 on my petrol focus weekly. I drive sensible enough and never over 3000 revs on the counter unless I'm booting on lol! I do always try to keep the engine in top form as I do with all our cars as I think if the engine is maintained to bits best you will get the best from it. As stated before though it depends on a lot of factors and how people drive ect

The father in law always had desiel and had issues and big bills so i talked him into getting a petrol on his last upgrade (2010cmax) and he has had 3 years of no issue driving which he is over the moon about.
He still thibjsbhebis spending around the same amount on fuel but with out the problems so therefore for him he is saving in a way.

I would not let tax price or mpg be a selling point as petrol vs diesel is concerned but I would look at your own personal needs and go from there.

Dpf filters are a nightmare when they play up. It's these especially thats why I keep with petrol over the years. I would of thought a new one would of cured the issue first hand I haven't heard much about these new versions from Ford that are maintenance free to 200,000 if they worked they sound like a better job.

Or in my case, move the OBD port completely (and stick it in a locked box), place a fake one in its place with 12v direct to a selection of pins
Not only cant they steal my car, but they have to get a new key replicator

I like that idea fella. Would love to see the thieves face when he is trying for about an hour to start the car via Obd port only to reliase It's fake lol!
I remember back in the day we used to unplug starting wiring on the old escorts as a old security system lol!
