    Idler Arm/ Pulley noise

    Was supposed to leave this morning taking our 28 ft TT to Gatlinburg TN area. Didn't go due to Tropocal Storm Nate and all of the rain they are going to get.

    Kind of glad, my truck started " chirping" which to me sounds a lot like one of the pulleys on the engine. It increases with engine speed. Took it to my Ram dealer and they agreed. I already have a service appointment for Thursday. Truck has 15,500 miles.

    Don't know if I can download the audio I took of the noise.

    Shucks. That silly storm is not real bad compared to others. Moving so fast, it would not be but a day of rain. Go there often for decades and decades to ride motorcycle. Now have kids and grandkids there. Just returned.

    That silly idler pully is a nothing. If in stock, get it on and go.

    It is not a pully. It is an injector leaking
