Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Mazda 626 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 149000 miles
Over a year ago, my mazda started squeeling and then an alternator belt broke. I had it replaced. About a month later, the "other" alternator belt broke along with the same noise. And then the first one broke again. Along with the squeeling was a burning smell. The 2 belts take turns breaking. Each mechanic has told me they don't know what the problem is. Please tell me I just need a new alternator because the last 2 mechanics swear against it and I am worried I might blow my car up if I don't get this problem fixed. Something has to be causing them to break repetitively. It worried me too because I know that my belt(s) control other functions of my care as well. Do I really have 2 different "alternator" belts or is one considered for something else? Thanks, Marie
have the same problem?
