[DML] Re: Ringing noise in engine

Try running the motor without 1 or the other belt and see if the noise
goes away. You can run the motor for a while (especially when it's
cold) without the water pump. If the noise is coming from inside the
motor you will know it when you take both belts off. Not likely or you
wouldn't hear it so clearly. Maybe the belt for the alternator is
hitting the fan or maybe the fan is loose. Could make the noise you
are trying to describe. Check the alignments of the belts.
