    Unhappy What Could It Be?

    A couple of months ago my car started to sound like a tractor,It only done this when the car heated up to normal operating temp!The noise is coming from the driving auxilary belt area,i was told it might be the water pump or tensioners,so i took the belt off to see if the noise went away,it did,what could it be as it stoped when the belt was off?

    if it was the alternator it would probably be there all the time as it is working as soon as you turn the key but if it is from the area you say it could be the water pump but when you said what the problem was i though the tappets could be out of adjustment or need replacing
