    Hey guys, I have a problem with my 94 GT. Theres a random squeak that comes at random times and it comes from the front of the engine, I've changed the belt, tensioner pulley, and idler pulley and it did nothing. Please help me out thanks.


    Btw I have an exedy mach 350 stage 1 clutch and SR Performance adjustable clutch cable and firewall adjuster, other than that its bone stock.

    Remove the belt and spin by hand every pulley. They should all rotate smoothly. If one seems to grab it's likely the bearings on that accessory causing the squeak.

    I've had the bushings in the dizzy squeak before. While the car is running and squeaking give a little push on the dizzy fwd, back, side to side. If the squeak changes or goes away...that's you problem.
    BTW you'll find out real quick if the spark plug wires are bad.

    that is an easy way to check. After all they are only electrons and they are like super small.

    So if it does go away should I change the distributor, the sparkplug wires, the spark plugs, or all of that together?
