Start engine ind get a small plastic tube and put it on the alternator and put your ear to it and you should hear the noise real bad.
And you should feel it getting real hot after run for 3 minutes if not its not ALTERNATOR

Does the serpentine belt go around a tensioner and an idler pulley. because i cant find a tensioner for sale at all and im starting to think it doesnt exist. everyone keeps trying to sell me a timing belt...

some use just the alternater with a worm screw to put tenso on the belt or the alternater will have a slider where the screwis located that allows you to tilt the alternater up and down to put tenson on the belt

Where is alternator located on 1996 cadillac deville? how do you replace alternator on 1996 cadillac deville?

The alternator will be located in the front of the engine on the drivers side. To replace it you must loosen the idler pulley and remove the serpintine belt, once the belt is off you must unhook any wires goin to the alternater and then there are two bolts at the bottom of the alternater holding it in place. Remove those and the alternater is loose then it may take some jockying back and forth to get it out. Obviously at this point the new one can go in the same way the old one came out.

Replaced alternater now cant get belt back on cant find adjuster

well not having put one on myself, here goes.all your pulleys that are smooth on the outside means the back of the belt is goin to be touching it, whereas the grooved side of the belt is gonna face the grooved side of the pulley.the adjuster just tightens the belt.good luck

Alternater good not charging

The only three cause for this are either your fusible link for the alternator has failed, your supply wire from your alternator to your battery has become damaged, or your leads goin into your alternator a loose and not properly secured on the alternator.I hope I could help, rate me accordingly, Thanks...

Car running rought when u press the throtle there is a nocking noise i think this is the nock senser if i take the ht leads off the spark plugs 1 at a time starting from left they all make a nocking noise...

If you're getting ticking-type knock, I'd first look to the lifters. if it's a real hard knocking, it could be your main bearings on the lower end

My alternator caught on fire through what i think is my voltage regulator it is a 1990 ford bronco inline 6 300 where should i start looking for the problem also the connector goin into the alt. is ashes...

Yes,alwaways replace fire damaged componants. Now, I really don't think the fire was caused by the regulator. When an alternater works at maximum output for an extended period, it overheats and overheats enough to melts soldered connections. Better known as slinging solder. When this happens loose connections go where they shouldn't and a short is created which in turn heats and melts the winding lamination which is what actuall catches fire.Once you replace the Alt. the impportant thing is to find out why yhe old one got so hot. Make sure the charging rate is between 13.6 and 14.2v. Anything less than 23 volts will cause an heating up. This is because the Alt is very, very near full output. Make sure all grounds are good and the battery fluid is at rec, level. Good Luck, Ned
