This procedure usually works:
·Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine. Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter.

·Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.

·Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's pinion gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck pinion gear.
·Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

1992 Plymouth Acclaim While driving up the road


when you say coil, do you mean the ignition coil or the pick up coil (aka pickup module)? It is located under the rotor in the distributor-if you replaced the distributor (did you really?) it should have had a new unit in it, the only other thing I could guess is you have some sort of issue with a fuse or relay for the ignition.

What does the belt look like on a 1990 acclaim that goes on alternater pulley. are what is it called autozone is not helping me.


the acclaim has a V-belt. It is only one belt that runs just the altenator.
A serpentine belt is the kind that runs all the pulleys at the same time.

I have a squeal and we changed the alternater belt and it still squeals. we have also tightened the alternater bracket. can you tell me what else it might be. thanks


My friend;
Try this;
  1. Check the belt pulley may have loose bolts (Nuts), etc.
  2. Check the three belts, them selves for deteriorations, tears, glazing {like glass shapes}, etc.
  3. If your car has a timing belt instead of timing chain, normally it's either inside the front of the engine or the out side under some type of cover.
  4. Could be also, one of the pulleys hub bearings.
  5. Check & make sure none of the moving fans' blades touching the fan frames.

Try it, & PLZ; let me know if I add any benefits to you.
I hope I add some thing valuable to you.
Regards;

This SOUNDS as if (1.) A BELT is TOO LOOSE or (2.) you have BEARINGS that are FAILING in One of the PULLEYS the CHECK for this is as Fallows
With ALL BELTS REMOVED you Need to SPIN ALL Pulleys and LISTEN for ABNORMAL NOISE such as A Humming Sound the Pulley with the ABNORMAL SOUND when SPUN WILL BE The Problem,
