Hi, Recently only on start up makes a chirping sound that comes from the right side of engine. After about 3 minutes it goes away. I have the Duratec 24v engine so it does not have the Cam Synch. It only has 33k miles so I was not expecting a problem so soon:-(

Thanks in advance and Hi as I am new to the forum.

Thank you,

Skilcal

By right side, I assume you mean the driver side? If so, it it coming from under the black plastic cover on the driver side of the front head that says DURATEC 24V on it? If so, may be the water pump belt.

Hi Jeff, Yes I mean the drivers side and yes its a Duratec 24v. Was thinking it could be the water pump belt. But since the noise does not last long its been hard to track down. Plus living in MN the weather has to be good to even think about looking under the hood in the winter:)
