I went off roading a week or so ago and got the engine completely soaked with heavy mud. Washed down the engine bay, then dried out the plug wires, cap, rotor and distributor and now I've got this nasty sound from one of my belts/pulleys. I *think* it's from the power steering pulley, but I can't be sure. I have hit the belts with A TOUCH of WD-40 and there was no change in the sound. Yes, I hear the minor squeal from one of the belts, but that's not the sound I'm talking about. It's that God awful "rock inside a rolling tire" sound that's got me stumped.
Anybody have any ideas for me on what it could be? The sound was not there before I washed the engine bay.
