Sometimes it does but when idling it's steady


Remove the serpentine belt and physically check all pulleys that will spin, they should spin smoothly, if not replace any that are bad. a bad bearing in a pulley will make all kinds of noise.


Yeah I thought I heard water pump. Was going to sell. justw ,


Broke on may to the dealership! Need to sell
