I have a '95 Accord 2.2 Vtec auto. I have a loud whine even after I pulled the external belts, and valve cover. I guess it's safe to say I have a Tensioner Pulley bad? Oreillys called it a Tensioner Puller and it's $56. There's some oil spatter behind the cover so I'll do cam and crank seals to help this. The belts new a few thousand ago from what PO said it broke on him. Should I believe this? I'm in there already but fixing it right in way of sound and oil leaking I'm at $80. Napa has a kit at $125 but that's not cam and crank seals I'm sure but they were $8 a piece. Belt appears pretty new but what's a belt cost? Also the inner cover is melted and rubbing the cam pulley, would this be known to cause a loud whine?

Well one of the bolts in the upper cover is just turning and won't loosen(one behind the oil dip stick). I can see oil in the cover but it appears to be slinging up from below. I would rather get the kit local and not have to wait for it. I like to fix problems asap and because I drive the car I want it fixed this weekend.
For the TB cover retaining bolt that rotates and does not loosen, you may have to grind the head off w/ a dremel to allow removal. Simply leave that bolt out when replacing. There are enough bolts w/ one missing to hold securely in place.
The nut is a blind nut that has grips to hold it in place. These have twisted out allowing the nut to rotate. To fully repair would require removing the rear TB cover,... a lot of work.

Well, I'm getting the O-ring seal, and pulley, if I see anything else I'll head to town to buy it but no need on buying it all just because. May only be the O-ring seal leaking and the crank and cam seal are ok.
Anyone know the sound this pulley makes if installed wrong? Mine also sounds like a tight belt. I'm going to pull the lower cover and see what I have. Also, say the pulleys has worn bearings, any sure way to know without tearing it all down to find out it's all new?
