Seems like there is a LOT of accessory noise coming from my engine. I cant tell if its coming from the a/c or the belt tensioner or what. It just seems like a lot of drivetrane noise is coming from the belt run accessories.

Anyone know a way to quiet it down a little under the hood?

use a screwdriver like a stethascope and listen through the handle to isolate the noise.
