Question about 1996 Toyota Corolla
I think its the alternater belt(excuse my spelling) it gets faster when i accelerate. Does it need tightening.
Also cv joints what happens if they are left with the clicking noise for too long. Does this do permanent damage??
If these are still the original belts, tightening may not solve the problem. Overtightening those belts may cause even greater problems. There are spray products out there that claim to lube the belts, eliminate squeal, blah blah blah - temporary fixes only. Save your self the frustration and just have them replaced. They are relatively cheap.
Clicking CV joints - not good - they will only get worse and in extreme cases they may break leaving you stranded. Once they start clicking, they are already gone. Check local rebuilders for rebuilt assembly - much more economical and much easier to replace entire assembly than to try to break it down & rebuild yourself.

Sounds like you have a loose belt
and if a cv joint goes to long will need to be replaced.
