I changed the alternater 8 months ago and it squeeked from day 1. I endured the squeeking until the other day when it suddenly stopped. One major problem, now I drove my car to the gas station, put gas in, went to start it again and it wouldn't start. My husband came and jumped it. I then headed to my destination which was about 20 miles, round-trip. I parked the 96 Lincoln Mark VIII, went out the following day and she was so close to dead that the security beep sounded faint. Needless to say, she wouldn't start. I was so happy about the squeeking being gone and now I just want it back!
