I have an 89 190 E 2.6. It is having a problem and making a good amount of noise. It seems like either bearings in some pulleys are a problem and also that the fan pulley is touching another pulley and making contact with the blades possibly as well. I recently had the car under water slightly ina flood and had to drive it out. After this I began to have squeaks and noises from pulleys. I think the water took out whatever oil or grease was on the pulleys and they are now having problems. The fan problem however I cannot be certain. I am going to take it to a mechanic tomorrow because I'm afraid to drive it much. If you guys have any input as far as what a flood could cause as well as common problems with the pulleys I would really appreciate it.
