engine noise....maybe powersteering?????
ok so for the last 2 weeks when I start my car up, doesn't matter if the engine is hot or not, it makes this kind of grinding spinning over-reving noise. the best way I can describe it, is take a disc-man and open it while its running, and the way the cd acts, like over reving with stability issues. Once my engine I bounce the throttle around a few times it seems to stop. the noise has been getting worse and I'm starting to get very worried because I can't figure it out. It sounds like it is coming from the lower portion of the engine. Today when I started the car and drove for a bit, I noticed a rattle now coming from the same area...the rattle is consistent and sound similar to a heat sheild rattling. it get louder and is more consistent if I have the AC on...which I related to the problem as more load on the engine.....I think it's possibly A. the powersteering pump. B. the Clutch fan or C. water pump. I haven't had any issues yet with unstable engine temps, so I'm quite confuused as to what I should do. Hopefully someone has experienced this issue and can help...
