When the alternator went bad, the belt had to be replaced.
About a week after the belt has been replaced, the car belt
squeels when starting and the battery guage drops to low
then goes back up to high. Then after about a week of
squeeling, the belts breaks. We have replaced the alternator twice and the belt 4 times. Our mechanic
cannot figure out what is wrong. 92,000 miles. First
time belt has been replaced was with the alternator

Hi I have a 94 Capri that has had an overheating problem since I bought the car. It has the radiator new hoses, new water pump, replaced. Drive it for 20-30-even 40 minutes with out stopping and it is fine. Stop once for 4-5 minutes restart the car and it is hot(no fans have come on at all)it will continue to run hot until I turn on the heat to the hotest , highest setting and let it run. That is not very practical at 95 degrees. Do the fans have a relay or switch, sensor, somewhere that I need to check. There is a fan outside the radiator, and one inside. Not sure if one was added trying to cool things down. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Steve

I don't know if i have a fan problem, (don't know when they should come on) It also seems I have one on the outside of the radiator, and one inside. Do they have relays, is there a place I can go to find a wiring diagram for the fans? This car has a new water pump, and does fine running cool until you stop at a store for a few minutes, or a couple stop signs or lights and then it gets hot and the only way to cool it down is to run the heater full blast to help dissipate the heat. In 95 degree heat this is not practical. thanks for any help you can offer.
