Does anyone know what this sound could be

I'm trying to figure out what this sound could be, I had my gf's dad (mechanic) briefly listen to it and thinks it could be the auto-tensioner going out. I have had this car since september of last year, bought it at 100,700 miles, just hit 106k. I've only done 1 oil change on it, since I don't really drive her all that much. I know it has a new water pump, from the receipt that was given to me when I bought the car. Any thoughts on what might this be?



99 honda prelude with m/t. All stock except for a few suspension upgrades. Any questions feel free to ask, I have searched around but how do you search for a particular sound. So please do not flame me.

And yes, if you frequent pp.com, po.com or h-t.com then you might have seen this post. I'm trying to get it figured out so I don't kill my car.

Re: Does anyone know what this sound could be

Well the audio isn't that clear and I have no idea what a tensioner going out sounds like, so I'm gonna say it might be one of your bearings in the p/s or alternator going out, but if it sounds more like a knocking, or slapping then its the timing belt.

Wait til someone who knows a bit more about it post, you should get a response by tonight when everyone gets on.

Re: Does anyone know what this sound could be

My noise is the p/s pump. it never leaked, let it go...now it leaks. worn bearings. doesn't make any knocking or slapping, the belts just sound loud. or a grinding if the bearings are on their way out.

Re: Does anyone know what this sound could be

the noise certainly needs to be looked more carefully because it's possible the water pump,but i don't think its that,what you should is remove all the belts from the engine just to clear your mind and then start the engine to see if the noise is still there,it sounds to me its in the engine .

Re: Does anyone know what this sound could be

Sorry that my response has been a bit lacking but I wanted to post another video for you guy's to listen to. I went to record the video after a friend of mine noticed that the crank pulley was wobbling, but when I went to record proof (which was unsuccessful) I noticed the sound was coming more from the alternator area then the crank pully area. So any more idea's
