First, run the EEC self-tests to see what kind of error codes are showing up.

If the noise persists after you bypass each of the accessories, it may be a bent pulley rubbing the belt.

Also, those idler and tension pulleys use sealed bearings. If you can pull one of them...

Well that's good! Lucky the engine didn't suck in water fast enough to hydro-lock.
