  1. Trying to find the cause of what sounds like an external engine rattle around the front of the engine. It started when I replaced the crankshaft pully that failed. I have replaced the tensioner pully with a patent one, I have replaced the water pump because there was play in the bearing, I have replaced the idle pulley but still it rattles on tick over. It's fine when driving, I have started the engine with no belt on and it's as sweet as can be. Belt back on and it rattles at tickover. Only thing I can think of is it might be a steering pump or alternator? But neither seem to be noisy listening with a stick. Any ideas would be welcome. Thanks.
