Serpentine noise after hose down.
I had the truck out on some muddy forestry roads this week and got alot of mud in the engine area after hitting puddles at speed I guess.
So I hosed down the engine while it with Idling careful not to soak electrics etc.
A few days later I notice this serpentine belt area noise.
Ive searched online and had a better look at things.The only loose part would be the PS pulley which I can pull out maybe 1/16" but not side to side.
I am soaking the belt in some soap and will wire brush some polished areas on the pulleys before I reinstall and check for noise again.
Are these Ford pulleys sealed? My Toyota had the same issue last year and
I found out the bearings are not sealed on those engines.
Pisses me off that I get grief from her for giving her clean up.
