Belt shouldn't cause check engine light. The grrr sound might be the abs system. There is no timing belt, it's a chain.

Go to autozone and have them read the codes. Write them down and post them here. Don't always trust their computer for what the codes mean.

Do you have a code scanner? If not many auto parts stores will read them for you. We can help alot more if we know what those codes are.

if the grr sound might be the abs shouldnt the light come on in the dash?
i didnt got the codes but i will get them tomorrow and ill post them here.
so its a chain should it be replaced or you never touch it.cause in europe theres some cars that are chain but they tell a certain mileage to change it

thank you for the help guys.
and i love my disco xD

The grrr or crunch sound is a normal part of the abs system when the car is started, so it won't turn on an error light.
