Dear americanmuscle-- Your answer is yes, no and maybe. From just your description it could be the bearing, but the noise could also be coming from the water pump, alternator, flywheel, a/c clutch or the transmission. Are all fluid levels correct? This is the best I can tell you without more information. Let me know what you find. Good luck from Bovan.
