My Ride: '04 Cadillac Deville
I'm really beginning to think this is a water pump/pulley issue. The noise is still present until you rev the car to about 2.5K-3k RPM's and then at that point the engine just gets loud enough to where you can't hear it. The fan clutch is new and you can move it around, but just barely. I'm going to take the fan and belt back off today and I'm going to check the water pump while i'm there. It was done at 85k miles and I just hit 148k so it needs to be done anyway. I was going to wait until Christmastime but I'll go ahead and get it out the way.
