Really crappy news...
I wanted to take my car for a short ride today but after I started it it was making a high pitched grinding noise that would go up and down in pitch when reved. The noise is coming from the firewall side of the motor. I thought maybe it had a bad pully so I pulled the belt off and started the car. Well the noise was still there, and even worse it sounds like it's under the rear valve cover(the front part where the timing chain gears are) it is real metallicy sounding almost like the chain is grinding the front cover.
I'm wondering if the chain giudes are bad allowing the chain to do this or a gear has moved forward enough to to start grinding. The cars starts fine, runs smooth exept for the noise. I'm really ready to cry, with all the crap I've been through now this. I'm sure it's going to have to go to ford and is going to cost me $$. Oh well It will just have to sit in the garage until spring and then I'll deal with it. I'm so freaking bumbed right now .
