1994 Dodge Intrepid Question: Charging Problems

my intrepid will stop charging when it is idling.The belt makes a screeching noise until you get back up into higher rpms, could this be just the alternator or something else? --mathew64 -
Answer 1
It sure sounds like the belt tension is too loose. You need to adjust the belt tension, if you don't know how to do this, take it to a shop to have them adjust the tension on all the belts. -
Answer 2
check the power steering pressure sensor. It will cause high idle and the engine will stall sometime is low speed turns -
Answer 3
Sounds like you need a new belt. Cars today have a spring loaded tensioner on them. When the belt becomes worn/stretched enough the tensioner can no longer do its job, causing slippage/ squeeling. After replacing the belt if you still have charging issues then it is time to have the charging system annalized. -
