Mentioned today that my car was running rough.
I went out to drive it and it vibrates, runs like crap, and can here something loose on the passenger/pully side of the motor.
Put on my scan tool, and zero codes came up.
It ran a little better after i drove it a few miles, but still something very wrong.
I can here some noise and slight valve clatter at idle. The noise is coming from the timing belt, serpentine belt area.
Soonest time i can tear into it is this Friday, should I replace the timing belt and tensioner?
The car has a new serpentine belt and water pump replaced in the last year.
Check your passenger side engine mount.
