Was wondering if you could please help me diagnose the sound coming from my drive belt area. I have a 2001 4x4 Tacoma 3RZ-FE 2.7 L, manual transmission.
I thought the noise might of been my drive belts, so I replaced all 3 belts. Power Steering, Alternator, and Compressor belt. All the pulley's seems fine when I checked it as I replaced the belts.
It seems to only make the noise on cold start, and i notice the noise getting louder if I press on the gas or if i turn the steering wheel. Power steering fluid is full, might be old tho, but not sure if that matters. Once the engine is warm and I start to drive, the noise goes away.
