Question about 1998 GMC Envoy
When the car idles it makes a clunking tinking noise and gets louder under acceleration. ive noticed the idler arm pulley is loose so i removed the belt to check but its still making the same noise. could it be the harmonic balancer is loose or is it the timing belt?

Likely the Idle Tensioner Pulley. These will often squeal very badly while driving and even at idle. The pulley is the most likely cause of engine squeal on this vehicle. Replacement for labor and part should be around 200.00 or so from the dealer. Cheaper if a local mechanic will do it.

SOURCE: I have a 98 Gmc Jimmy and everytime I accelerate it makes this noise around the front passenger side and it sounds like when you would put a card in the spokes of a bicycle...? Any ideas of what this
Sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. Could also be a CV. Make sure you know what wheel before you replace anything. Jack it up and spin the wheel by hand. If correct wheel you will hear it. Hope this helps
