  • INSPECT AND ADVISE: I inspected the vehicle and found there are separate noises present. There is a noise present from the serpentine drive system. I removed the belt and the noise subsided. I inspected the rotating assemblies and found the tensioner is weak and the rear bearing in the alternator has failed. With the belt off there is still a rattling noise present from the front of the engine. I inpected the engine oil level and found there is no measurable oil in the engine. I suspect the noise is present from the timing chain assembly. The noise is much quieter after performing an oil and filter service however engine damage may have occurred. Recommend replacing the serpentine belt, serpentine belt tensioner and alternator. Suggest maintaining proper engine oil level in order to prevent catastrophic engine damage.
  • DISASSEMBLE, REPLACE THE ALTERNATOR ASSEMBLY, REPLACE THE DRIVE BELT TENSIONER, REASSEMBLE WITH A NEW DRIVE BELT, TEST FOR PROPER OPERATION.
