so normally my truck has a good little squeal to it but it goes away after 30seconds of the truck running from a cold start. thats not a big deal for me, pretty sure its just the belt.
Today i hoped in it, its a 2002 edge with the 3L (ovbs), and i turned the key to hear a horrible squealing, not the normal squeal but a rather loud one. i poped the hood to see if i could pinpoint the issue, im no mechanic, yet, but it seemed to be coming from the belt/fan area. i looked at the fan from the side and noticed it wasnt balanced worth sht, it has a pretty good wobble to it. im wondering if maybe some bearings it spins on could have gone and started this horrific noise?
hopefully someone has some ideas and places for me to look, if not ill just bring it into the shop (i work at ford, conveniently) and let one of the guys look at it
