My daughter has a 98 Protege that I have had to a mechanic originally for a squealing noise when it started up. He said it was the alternator belt that it needed replaced. He replaced the belt it continued to make the noise then busted. When we took it back to him he stated the alternator had locked up and needed replaced so a new alternator was replaced we have now had 3 more alternator belts put on. The last belt was a Gator belt it busted and fell off on her way home from work leaving her stranded once again. The mechanic does not seem to know what the problem is. Does anyone have any suggestions?
