Belt squeal HOT alternator pulley
Hey all, nube here. I got a 92 ranger with 2.3l engine. The belt is squealing and alternator pulley is too hot to touch. I replaced alternator(new),belt and belt tensioner(used) last year. Is this a common problem. It's my Dad's truck,only used to haul garbage,building supplies once or twice a month. My car broke down 2 weeks before Christmas, so I have been driving this since(7 months now) and have only put about 4000 miles on it. Even after the new alternator,belt, and tensioner were installed it squealed for about 10 secs then quit after start up. Have used cheap belts and Gator belts with same outcome. All pulleys(water pump,power steering pump,alternator,idler,tensioner) turn freely. Looks like i have to put a new belt on it every year no matter what. So what do yall think?
