Yes, the loose belt certainly seems to be the possible problem in this case. It's likeley the tensioner pulley has broken and needs to be replaced. Also, try to change the belt at the same time if any of the ribs are cracked or if the belt is frayed.

Check your voltage at the alternator it should be 13-14.5 volts at idle.Also check the serpentine belt for cracks in the ribbing or the underside of belt.

I have the check engine light battery light and power steering doesnt work, but all fluids are nominal battery is producing correct voltage


check your drive belt, this si the belt at the front of the engine. Make sure its secured and not loose. with the powersteering not working and the battery light lit may idicate a faulty serpentine belt (drive belt). If this is ok, please post additional info..hopefully this helps!!

Change the alternator


First, take several pictures of the serpentine belt arangement so you know how that goes back together.
Here are the steps I recommend :
- 1 ) Remove negative cable (black) from the battery.
- 2 ) Loosen the serpentine belt by pulling back the belt tensioner( you may need a special tool)
- 3 ) Remove the connector plug and( red) hot wire.
- 4 ) Pull the bolts out holding alt on bracket.
- 5 ) Pull out alt.
How do you know that the alt is bad ? A auto parts center can check it for you.
What are you replacing it with, new or used.
Please let me know how it goes.

High temperature gauge reading, low battery voltage reading


The loud whine you speak of indicates one of two things a bad serpentine belt or alternator, The first thing would be to check the belt.Look for cracks worn spots or glazing. If the belt looks ok then take the belt off and start the engine for a minute or so and listen for noise.
