SOURCE: The belt keeps coming loose

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.

SOURCE: i have an 85 amc

you need to put a chevy alternator with a built in regulator on it.
You need a 3 wire alternator. Two wires go to the battery and one wire goes to anything connected to the ignition switch.

SOURCE: i am looking for the manual for an 87 amc eagle

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.

SOURCE: 1984 AMC Eagle automatic transmission not fully

Check oil level, the motor has to run.
Could be the oil pump in the gearbox.
Or the link for the gear selector out of adjustment.
Maybe a gearbox oil filter.

Good luck.

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.
