I started hearing a sound from the engine at idle only when engine is warm. It sounds like a dry bearing but it come from the back of the engine, mostly hear it between the back wheel and the door on the passenger side. Only at idle.

Any ideas ??

just noticed a very similar sound coming from the same area today driving to work:( I currently have a P0410 code and need to look at replacing my air and electric changeover valves to see if that fixes the problem(yes my air pump works:). Do you have any current CEL's?

Not sure how many miles are on your car, but it sounds as if it possibly could be one of the the idler pulley (s) or tensioner pulley. Have you replaced and when?? I think it is a part of the 60K maintenence schedule ( I'm sure the belt is, not sure of idler pulley(s)??). If it happens with the AC off, switch on and see if the noise is still present or does it disappear as the idle speed will change slightly. This would give also point to one of the the ider pulley or tensioner pulley beginning to show excessive wear. There are two idlers and one tensioner pulley as I recall. Cost is about $70 for upper idelr and ~$85 for the lower idler and tensioner pulley. Good luck!!

Theres a possibility that the noise it coming from your Clutch Throw-out Bearing... Is there a difference in the noise when you press and depress the clutch pedal...? Actually first is your car Manual or Auto... If auto then ignore this.

The car is a Tiptronic.

fredhaz,

With 135K on that transmission, has it been serviced at the proper intervals?? I am not a TIP expert by any means as I have had all standards in my PCARS. WIth that many miles, it could be a transmission output shaft bearing, but bringing it to any auto transmission service center could probably do a diagnose for you without going to the OPC. Other TIP experts can probably help you here. I am not sure what extent the TIP transmission can be serviced/rebuilt.

Good Luck!! demosan

A new AOS is under $200 - even at MSRP!

I suggest you get another opinion.
