Question about Cars & Trucks
The car is ten years old is it in the category which was recalled
I am going to need a make, model and year. Also what country, state, province you live in... it makes a big difference. Timing belts are supposed to be replaced on a strict schedule and hence would never be covered under any recall or warranty anyways but i can check.

If its a 99 4 cyl 2.4 ltr it should have a timing chain. Check your PCV (positive Crankcase Ventilation) Valve. it should rattle when you shake it. sometimes you can clean it with carb cleaner. but for what they cost, just go buy a new one. When they plug up it doesn't let your crankcase breathe and you will start getting oil in your throttle body or carb. Gas engines don't like to run on oil for the combustion process.4 cyl engines dont have a pcv valve just the v6 motor...

More than likely you have some bent valves which can lead to alot of money to fix. If you can do it yourself try to find a wrecked one or one with a bad bottom end and just get there cylinder heads and put on your motor with a new timing belt.

Could be anything from corrosion on cables, loose cables, lose or faulty wiring of wires behind alternator
defective voltage regulator. Visually inspect all the items noted. Then use a volt meter and measure the charging voltage of the alternator. It must be between 13,5 to 14.5 volts with and without accessories on at idle and 2000rpm. Anything below 13.5 weak battery or defective alternator ,lose wiring , corrosion. Anything above the 14.5 volts is a defective regulator.
