Question about 1990 Ford Mustang
The problem first started when I was driving and the car just died on me. I had to pop the clutch to get it home. On the way it started making a loud screeching noise along with heavy smoke from the engine. The car is draining the battery extremly fast too. Not the alternator though because the lights and everything stays on. The car just doesn't turn over. What do you think?
You have a Bad Belt Tensioner and will need a new one and Possibly a new Belt. Have the Alternator Checked also. It could have gone Bad during these Problems. If the Tensioner is Not keeping the Belt very Tight it will not allow the Alt. To charge the Battery and it will drain very fast.
