Your 1983 Chevy 454 engine has a loud squeaking noise and keeps ripping off the belt that goes on the alternator water pump and the air pump Can some one tell you What is causing it?
i had a similar problem on a 1990 Chevy 305 with a SERPENTINE BELT. I had replaced my power steering pump, when all was said and done it threw the belt off twice. the pwr steering pulley was mounted correctly THE SHAFT WAS WALKING OUT from the pump enough to cause a loud squeal then there goes the belt. I had a defective pump. i know C.I. is way smaller then mine but i hope this helps
When my peugeot 106 is running it makes a squeaking noise that follows the speed of the engine not the wheels and I've checked the alternator belt and it isn't that what could it be?
Some pulleys are made from two metal parts - the inner piece bolts to the crank shaft and the outer piece drives the belt. The two pieces are bonded together by a rubber damper which can become separated allowing the outer to slip on the inner causing squeaks and failure of drive to accessories like the alternator.
What else can be wrong if your engine light is blinking if its not the cluster or the speed sensor could it be the alternator your car died on the road a couple times Can anyone help you out?
a check engine light that flashes while driving has nothing to do with the speed sensor or alternator a flashing engine light shows that there is problem that is causing catylitic conver damage for instance if you had a bad spark plug or spark plug wire that was causing a missfire then the light will flash there is no other reason for the light to flash

Type of Engine Lubricating Oil versus Alternator Operation No, the wrong type of oil within the engine should have no effect on the alternator operation. However, IF in the process of putting oil in the engine someone were to spill some of the oil onto the alternator, AND IF some of that oil got into the alternator it could cause damage to the alternator.
The alternator of CD20 Nissan Serena is too hot when the engine is running causing the alternator belt to worn out is there something wrong with the alternator?
Due to the layout of the cd20 in a Serena it is not uncommon for the alternator too run at high temperatures. However the alternators that were fitted originally were capable of dealing with the required heat stresses. As long as the alternator is a good quality one it is normal. These engines do use alternator belts quickly so that is not unnusual. hope this helps.
The different electrical systems in a car take a lot of amps to run. Depending on the engine speed, regular alternators mail fail to put out enough juice causing the engine battery to use up its reserve capacity. A high output alternator has exactly that, a high output of power. Any automotive parts retailer can sell you a high output alternator or you can order one through your mechanic.
Any ideas as to why a 1998 Toyota Camry the battery fluid boiled out the engine would not shut down and smoke was present under the hood?
See related link. If it starts squeaking after replacement (or otherwise) you need to make it tighter (common problem with Echo). To do this, you need to first loosen the three bolts on the alternator (two on top, one on bottom) then you can pivot it forward by putting a pry bar between the alternator and the engine and pushing the top of the pry bar back toward the windshield.
