Trying to diagnose an annoying squeal coming from my motor, I took off the belts one by one and it remained even after I took off all 3!
What is causing this do you think, and how do I fix it.
My guess is harmonic balancer :(

Oh and if I spray a bit of WD40 around the base of the harmonic balancer it goes away for a few seconds.

Hmmm... harmonic balancer just a weight so not sure why it would squeal... maybe the oil seal in the timing gear cover??

Nah, its only a couple of months old, and I took the belt off from it - so it wasn't moving. None of the accessories, belts or pulleys were.

there was a thread a while back guys saying it was the starter motor not disengaging fully after start up, grinding against the flywheel. :idea:

There's an interesting concept, considering my starter motor cracked and fell out due to one bolt mod, so I put the bolt in the other hole.... lol.
