2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse spider gt won't start after I change alternator belt and steering belt when I try too start is making whyning noise it won't start


Make sure battery is good, battery terminals and cables/connectors connected to alternator correctly and belts adjusted to manufactured specifications. Check to see where the whining noise is coming from, if still present. If not the belts or pulleys it could be the starter.

Car wont start. i changed the crank sensor i jump a tooth on the belt i fixed that


A car will start and run without an alternator as long as the battery is is good condition and fully charged, but it is advisable to install the alternator belt, for if you do get the engine running, and while it's idling and you're checking out other bits and pieces, the engine is trickle charging the battery, and saves you time to install the belt later.

As for aligning the timing marks,,, they have to be aligned otherwise all sorts of problems will arise *IF for some fluke* the engine does start.

Do you remove belt when removing alternator


Hi:

To remove the belt, you must loosen the belt tensioner pretty far.
It is located up near the front of the engine, not far from the air conditioning compressor. It has a 10mm bolt that must be loosened, and that will allow the belt to be removed. After the Alternator is replaced, tighten the belt back up, and start the car , shut it back down and adjust the belt as needed.

Everytime i jump start my car it cranks but the battery light keeps coming on but i change the alternator and battery but it keeps turning off


check alternator output voltage. Should be 14.7v measure at rear of alternator and again at battery. they should be the same. if not
after that the wiring needs to be checked out. if alternator reads below 14.2v with everything turned on replace it.

How to change alternator belt on 98 mitsubishi galant es, i looked under the hood and a belt was shredded. i took it off and the car still started but when i cut the car off it wouldnt start back up, i...


Most likely what is happening is that either the fan/water pump is no longer being turned by the engine, which it needs the belt on for (Assuming it's a '98, not an '89), causing it to overheat, or the battery is being drained because the belt being off the alternator is causing the alternator to not turn, therefor producing no power. Make sure no shards of old belts remain, and put on the new belt. That should solve the problems.

Makes a loud squealing noise when i start it?


CHECK THE ALTERNATOR BELT IS TIGHT AND SERVICEABLE . THE EXTRA LOAD ON THE ALTERNATOR WHEN YOU START THE CAR IS CAUSING THE BELT TO SLIP.

Changed belt on 02 trailblazer now it won't start


Belt turns alternator, alternator charges battery.(no belt, no charging) Charge battery with a charger. Though it may start with a jump, the alt is designed to maintain the state of charge in the battery, not to fully charge it . Therefore jumping puts too much demand on alt and can damage it. or will shorten battery life considerably.
