Since you're at the back of the engine when it seems to get louder, alternator?

Holy crap! That sounds like more than a belt squeak to me. What the hell is up with all that rattling, diesel type noise? Do you have an exhaust leak?

i think its the 2.2 diesel engine, as for the squeak it sounds like a pully wheel or a belt,

Well, that would make sense, grandads. Since he doesn't have a location posted, I was just figuring he's in the States!

Thanks all. i forgot to mention, It's a 2.4L gas, the dieseling noise started out of the blue.
The squeak is a belt but its the other noise that i,m worried about.

I'd be looking around the exhaust manifold and down pipe if it were mine. It may be a blown gasket or a hole starting.
