Question about 1992 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

1992 s10 blazer/alternator

I had just replaced the old one a few weeks back and the new alternator was working fine until now. Everytime i drive for more then 10 mins i can hear my alternator making rough noises and i can smell a stong odour coming from it. I think it may be that the belt is to tight but i have the serpentine belt tensioner, is there anyway to loosen the belt manually? Or maybe i just got bad luck and the "new" alternator was a dud?

The new alternator you bought must have been the dud one. See the rating on the former before replacing. if belt is too tight there will be a sharp schwaking noise.

Cheers

Had a 94 Olds Bravada that did a similar thing and it was EGR valve on the front of the intake. It' s easy to take off and clean with WD 40 and if you have an air compressor blow it out good.

You could get them made perhaps at an a/c repair facility as they quite often make a/c hoses. Look in the phone book in your hometown and look under hydraulic lines/hoses as well. You provide them with the old hoses and they make you new lines in most cases.

Check the front and rear (although probably the rear) turn signal bulb socket for corrosion and/or water intrusion. If you find corrosion attempt to clean (but you will probably have to replace the socket and bulb). For water intrusion you will probably have to replace the break lamp assembly.
