SOURCE: 1995 nissan pickup new alternator and battery

Check the battery, make sure it's full,(if it's not sealed) then check the batt. for 1 or more dead cells.
The test is done with a hydrometer, to test specific gravity. If you don't have one they are fairly cheap at
any parts store, but if your going to the parts store
anyway, they will do this test and a load test for free.
If the battery checks out ok, check the connections
at the alternator if they look good, you may have a
defective alternator. I forgot to mention, that if you
have to add water to the battery for the specific gravity test, you will have to wait 24 hours for an
accurate result. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Is there a fix doe screech when starting pickup truck

More then likely your belts have worn and need tightening. When my screech, almost every time it's the alternator belt. Easy to do, BUT a little time consuming. Not only do you have to loosen the bolt at the top near where the adjusting bolt is, but the one underneath that it pivots on. You should just barely be able to twist the belt 90 degrees when tightened. Too tight and you'll damage the bearings in the water pump.

My battery keeps dying and I believe that the alternator belt needs to be tighten.

You may need a new alternator. If you take it off your local auto parts store should check it for free.

How do I replace an alternator/fan belt on a 1984 Nissan datsun Pickup?

#1 loosen the Alternator drive Belt adjusting bolt, and remove the belt. Install new belt,tighten the adjusting bolt to give you the propper belt tention. At the longest span between two polleys at the midway point press down with your thumb and you should not be able to move the belt more than 1/4 of an inch. Good Luck and have a good XMASS.

What should the correction tension be for a 1995 Nissan pickup & how do you check it?

as a rule of thumb, you should have no more then 10mm of up/down movement of the belt in the longest belt run ( the longest distance between any of the pulleys the belt runs in).
Simply grip the belt bewteen a figner and thumb and push and pull the belt in line with itself and the pulleys.
Too little tension will cause charging and water pump issues.
Too much tension will cause early failure of the alternator or water pump bearings..

1995 Nissan Altima - replacing alternator

Yes.  Have him purchase a Haines or Chiltons Manual at Auto Zone or similar store.  I have changed 2 alternators on my 95 Altima in my time and I am not an expert mechanic.  Also check out:

Pretty good primer for the novice.

I did not remove the belt all the way. Merely slipped it off the old alternator pulley and then slip the new alternator onto the old belt and then tightened/adjust the belt as needed when done.
Good luck.
