    I have done a search guys and it points towards crankshaft pulley but I have checked this and its ok no signs of deterioration, the belt tensioner appears a bit "loose" has anyone had this fail and give a similar noise?

    Im starting to get a bit nervous as Im thinking also that it may be cam chain?

    Help!

    when it is dark shine a torch down at the pulley do you see any metal "angel dust" if so this is a sign your pully is going but examin the tensioner as well as this can make a noise as freelanderoig said he replace his so really it will not be known if it was the pully or not but I bet it is
