Question about AMC Eagle

1 Answer

The belt keeps coming loose on my 1985 amc eagle wagon. Apparently, this belt also charges the battery. So my battery went dead, and the car makes squeaking sounds...

    When the tank is filled in my eagle wagon the car will stall when stopping or making a turn. Once the fuel is lower in the tank the problem goes away until the next fill.

You need to replace the alternator belt.they have a bolt which you loosen the belt. the belt probably got loose because this "tension" bolt was not properly tightened. the noise you hear is the belt slipping on the pullies. to replace it loosen the tension bolt until it is lose enough to remove the old belt. replace the belt with one of the same thickness and length. Be sure to tighten the bolt to where the belt will have about a 1/2 inch pressing down on it firmly with your thumb. you may have to remove some other components ( the fan for example) to replace the belt but thats questionable.

Charge light comes on what does it mean


Hello Victor, A charge light means the alternator is not charging the battery. It could be caused by a loose or broken alternator belt. Or a bad alternator or voltage regulator. I would get it looked at before it leaves you stranded with a dead battery.

Amc eagle repair


Get yourself some rolls of wire and a box of connectors, a pair of wire strippers and a wire end crimping tool, and replace each wire ONE at a time. Your only other option is to take the breather that you removed from the carb to put the gas in, and go find another car that it will fit. Drive that one.

84' amc eagle wagon starter wont turn over


If starter is good still, Check the battery connections on the battery and at starter. Clean then shiney. Check also the solenoid wire connection from the switch at the starter solenoid. Be sure it's clean and tight also. Then just be sure the battery is up to par.

I am looking for the manual for an 87 amc eagle wagon 4x4 for tranny related issues, I need this manual bad.


Go to faxonautoliterature. They carry dealer service manuals and have the manual you are looking for. As a matter of fact you can either get the manual for the whole car or one for the transmission only. I have used them before and had excellent service. Hope this helps.

"check engine" light keeps coming on, then car stalls. Help!


Sounds like fuel pump related. Check the pump pressure when the car is warm, also replace the fuel filter.
