Just started motor after 30 min drive and it’s making a bad noise. Sounds like a pulley is making noise or belt related

check the fan clutch and the fan bracket, don't drive if bad and replace both
Well done 👍🏻 glad you found it, at least now no one can blame it on ‘climate change’ 🤣😂It was the fan bracket pulley. Thanks for the advice. Maybe my video will help someone in the future although it's not really a good video!
That's a pretty in depth repair but it's also pretty common on these rigs with 200k+ miles . Good find, if that let go it would do some damage.It was the fan bracket pulley. Thanks for the advice. Maybe my video will help someone in the future although it's not really a good video!
Install OEM parts for another 200K miles. Also replace the belt tensioner bracket, bealt tensioner pulley and idler along with a new OEM drive belt.Timing belt was done about 20K miles ago (should have done the fan pulley then, I know). I'm at 286K. In Nov I had to do the belt tensioner pulley. Just the joy of a high mileage vehicle.
