I have a light green metallic 1984 300d with 230ks on the clock.
It's been going nicely until recently when I had to have its fuel pump replaced and injection pump timing reset.
The latest development is a strange screaming sound. The engine begins to squeal only after a certain number of revs has been reached and stops if I either increase or decrease the revs. After a few minutes, however, it stops.
I realise this might be one of the V-Belts but I don't have the expertise to tell if they are too loose or excessively worn...
Any tips about the V-Belts or other causes of that spooky scream?
Thanks in advance,
P.S. How cool is this list?! Thank you to all responsible!
