Re: Sounds like a bearing loose

The WP & tensioner pulley are recently replaced? :hmm: There is nothing else in that area to make that kind of noise.
Where did you get them from?

Ahh, in that case, maybe it's the P/S pump. Have you checked the fluid level.

Yeah, that ^^^^^^^ - and in a 1997, it might be the serpentine belt tensioner pulley or an idler pulley - or the A/C clutch center bearing.

www.rockauto.com, your make, year, model, "belt drive", two types: small 3-rib water pump belt tensioner/pulley, larger flat serpentine belt tensioner pulley/arm.
