    Power Steering Pump

    So i took the belt off my car to replace it and i have a nice sound of a tick... well my dad says it sounds like a pulley... WTF.. so i checked all the pullies and i was turning the powersteering pulley and going back and forth it sounds like the bearing is just F**ked up... you guys think that is the sound... it sounded like a loud ticking sound... we thought it was the valves... but i torqued them all down and check the Pushrods and nothing is bad... what you all think?

    lots of ticks will do that, the best bet is to try to locate where exactly it is come from. I get a lot of valve train noise on my 02WS6

    run the engine without the belt for a short time. as long as you dont kick the shit out of it and run it longer then a minute or so, it shouldnt hurt anything. By doing this, you are eliminating anything accessory related. this will help you pinpoin having an actual engine problem. being that you spun the pully on the power steering pump and you hear a clicking sound, thats typically not good lol. I would think this is more then likely your problem.
