I have a 2004 kia rio. Two years ago, the timing belt snapped and I had to replace the entire engine. Ever since, I have had trouble with the alternator belt squeaking. I have replaced the alternator itself on the advise of a mechanic and that did not help. I tighten it, and it seems ok for some time, then it squeaks only when I start it and whenI turn the ac on. Then that progressively gets worse to squeaking when I am driving period. Then thebelt snaps, we replace and the whole thing starts again. I am on my third belt now and was told something else is "running slow" and that is causing the belt to keep coming loose. Any ideas what I could check for?
