I had a squealing noise coming from my serpentine belt every time I used the a/c. A/C works fine, but to know avail the belt went. I was told awhile back that I had a bad tensioner. So things are a little $$$, so I decided to fix it myself. I replaced the tensioner and the belt started the and the squeal got louder. IT sounded like the alternator. So what do you think I did, Yes, I bought an alternator. I replaced the tensioner, belt and alternator and the squeal not only still but its louder and the pulley on the alternator gets very hot very quickly. How do I get rid of this noise or did I do something wrong besides miss diag my car. Thank you very much ( from a non mechanic) I, m actually a former F&I MGR.
have the same problem?
