san rensho, you're on point. just got a call from the mechanic and he said it was the pump. He recommends oem only on this part because they're weak to begin with. Cost difference seems to be about $120 between oem and aftermarket. Is it worth saving $120 for aftermaket? He also recommended a new belt for $45.
Although it's a repair, I'm just glad it wasn't anything major.
