I should point out that a mechanics stethoscope is one of the most versatile tools you can own. Even if you never do any work on cars. You would not believe the number of uses one finds for this instrument when you have one around. Ever have one of those annoying squeaks or rattles inside your car, or some other place that you can't exactly pin down no matter how close you seem to get to it? With this baby you will find ground zero on the squeak in a couple of minutes. In addition to cars, you can easily locate squeaks or noises in any kind of machinery, or in your homes floor and walls. I even used mine to locate an irritating squeak on a neighbors sewing machine. It is very easy to use, and even a lot of fun at times.
As for this model versus a higher priced one, unless you're a highly paid specialist of some kind that prefers the very best, I would pass up the more expensive scopes available here or anywhere else and buy this one. It is all the scope most of us should ever need, and one of the most handy and versatile tools to have in your home or garage..... Recommended.
For the price, its worth it, free shipping and all.
A short story about bearing noise: after you figure where the noise is from then first tighten down on the bearing, not the adjuster. The adjuster is for belt noise. Noisy bearings and squeaky belts sound different. Is it bad bearings or is the bearing just spinning in the race because of not being tightened down enough. If it was tight enough before and not now and nobody messed with it then maybe the bearing/pulley should be replaced even if it did quiet down because the bearing does not spin as freely as it used to spin and that's why a modestly tight situation used to be good enough but now you had to tighten it more. It will fail eventually and soon if that was the case.
the engine, it is most useful when other noises drown
out your noise your trying to hear, outside noises
such as air from the Cooling Fan can mask internal
sounds, and it also improvises sounds such as the
hissing noise from alternator bushings, yes this is
a useful device, but I rarely use it...
works best when you just lightly touch the end to source
with no pressure and no gap.. works great..
This gets a THUMPS UP from me..

Even if you don't do your own car maintenance, I think this a great to have for determining where those strange noises are coming from so the dealer doesn't rip you of with some other repair.
