Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse
Hi, 01 Eclispe V6 starts screeching when I turn on lights heater or really anything electrical, I had all belts replaced 6 months ago, sound is comming from Alternator or AC compressor area. Belt feels alittle loose, how can I tighten it if that is the problem?
I can pretty guarantee you it is your altrnator belt.. By turning on your headlights, it creates more load on the alternator, which in turn makes the belt work harder. To confirm, you can try some silicone spray on the belt. The noise should change or disappear. This happens a lot in winter when dirt gets on the belts.
Usually that will solve it. If not, you may have to get the belt changed.
