2002 Kia Spectra 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 105339 miles
i have had my main belt replaced 3 times in the last 6 months the squaking noise that comes out of it is when I run the ac. The shop that I took it to said it's my altenator that they see a blue and gold color around the pulley of the altenator could that be true?
WHAT? They see a blue and gold color around the alt, so it is bad? That makes no sense what so ever! If the belt is making noise, chances are there is a problem with the belt tension. Try an experiment for me. With the engine running and the hood open, pour a small amount of water on the belt. See if the sound changes. Let me know what you find. NOTE: WATER WILL SPLASH SO PROTECT YOUR EYES AND WEAR OLD CLOTHING
Also, I would like you to take the car to a nationally recognized parts store and have them check the alternator. Most will do it for free. That way we will be sure the alt is fine.
