Having problems with your 2004 Chevrolet Silverado ?

I have a high pitched squealing noise that started yesterday. It varies with RPMs and is worse at low RPMs. I think it is coming from the alternator, but is so loud with the hood open it is hard to pin down exactly where it is coming from. I'm thinking maybe alternator bearing. So far, the bateery charging idicator shows no problem. Thanks.

1995 Grand Am GT-3.1 Ltr. V-6: I am needing a wiring diagram for the alternator charging circuit. I have a short somewhere and before I found a burnt wire coming from the alternator. But before getting too deep I want to be sure of exactly where and which wires I think I should be looking at. Alternator checked good to specs. BUT the red battery wire coming out of the back of the alternator is TOOO hot to touch. Could this be a faulty ground?


Most likely...seems like you have a handle on it. There may be wiring diagrams available, for example Chiltons manuals...To my knowledge there exists no "internal" wiring diagrams for alternators of any make.Good Luck ... 1995 Pontiac Grand Am

I drive a Renault Trafic 1.9 dci 56 plate and had my steering go very heavy and heard a whining noise and had power steering fluid coming out of what I think is the pump. The fan belt linking the power steering pump and the ( I think)alternator has come off and the battery light and STOP light has come on on the dashboard. Has anyone ever had experience of this problem? Does anybody know what parts are faulty, or whether it can be repaired, how hard is it to fix and how much should it cost me

My rotors are shot.How do i replace them? Also had a bad antifreeze leak. Pulled over and found hole in hose. Addressed problem so i thought.Now when i shut it off it leaks pretty good. Did the cheap radiator quick fix and it slowed it down, but is still a problem. Cant exactly see where its coming from but , it looks like its coming from behind the serpatine belt pully, lower left. Was wondering maybe the hose was prelude to something i think, i dont know. Anyway any suggestions would be greatl

Hi i replaced a waterpump on a 99 pontiac grand am 4 cyl..and after putting back together and timing it. Fired it up and makes screaming nose as if the belt is loose..i thought maybe its the bearings in the a/c or alternator. But its not. The nosie happens when you start the car and goes away and comes back so often..im now starting to think its a bad waterpump. Any sugestions? Thanks


Could be I once went to the big auto parts store and went through three before I got a good rebuilt water pump if you can buy a new one not a rebuilt water pump your chance of having problems is way less. if the problem did not exist prior to the ins ... 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT

Transmission issue I have a friend who has a 1998 Ford Ranger XLT with a 2.5L engine Manuaul transmission. He has an issue. He had broken the rear end and had got it fixed. I went out there to look at it and He has the balance weight on the drive shaft is broken. He is only able to get it to shift into 4th and 5ht gear only. No reverse or 1st or 2nd. I told him that the shift syncronizers for those particular gears may be sheared or bad. They think it maybe the pin that come out or broke. I t


This 'ol truck has more shift issues than a Kleenex box has wipes. First off, a broken weight on the drive shaft is not going to cause gear selection problems. I suspect that the "curb" was more than the truck's clearance could handle, and that there ... 1998 Ford Ranger SuperCab

When I stop at the red light or when I'm stock in the traffic, the engine just stop and all the dash light flash (EPC, hand brake, batterie). I have to wait few minutes and after it restart normaly?!? Sometimes, it's like if the engine is working on 3 or 4 and after 6 cylinders, the RMP is waving and the brake comes hard under my foot?!

Just dropped in a new die hard gold series battery. Everything was fine for a few days. Last nite, we were coming home from the movies, had to turn on the headlights and windshield wipers. Dash lights started to flicker and car lost power. We got the car home, shut it off, tried to start it again but the battery is drained. It's a 91 cadillac fleetwood. Thinking and hoping it's the alternator?


Sounds like a bad alternator if the other battery also died suddenly.... make sure all wires are connected correctly to the battery and alternator and if so take alternator off and take it to autozone so they can check if its good..... Also take batt ... 1991 Cadillac Fleetwood

1995 honda accord. blows fuse when i put car in D4 and barely begin to accelerate. This fuse also cuts power to alternator so it stops charging. Car will not shift properly after fuse blows. I can manually put shift selector lever in 1st or 2nd but I believe it only shifts into second gear in either position. In D3 or D4 when fuse is blown it will not shift. It remains in 3rd gear or maybe 4th. Hard to tell which gear. This is my friends car, no diagram for interior fuse box, but I think i

I own a 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 4 x4. It has 201,000 miles on it. When I am in a hurry and run it pretty hard to get somewhere, the red oil light comes on and, maybe it's my imagination, but I seem to smell oil burning. The oil light goes off after the truck has been cut off for awhile. This might help. I recently got the oil changed at Wal-Mart. They commented on their billing sheet that there was an oil leak before the truck was brought in for an oil change. I didn't think much of it because I

Well its a 97 maxima SE, 168,000. It has had a problem just lately again dying. When you back up in reverse. It dies. While at stop light just dies. Not all the time. It has been known to just die while car is driving in traffic. Yet it doent always do this. mechanics have tried to pin point this issue yet no defintive cure. No check service light comes on. I think it may be altenator or fuel pump but I dont really know. Maybe 02 sensor. May need new spark plugs. Nothing really has been done to


I would check for a loose connection running to the fuel pump as the first thing or maybe just replace the pump to start as it may be getting weak with age. Very strange that you aren't getting any codes. I doubt it is the alternator since it dies wh ... 1997 Nissan Maxima

Hi. We are again having problems. The car engine smokes first thing in the morning. It is White smoke and smells like engine oil. It only lasts maybe 10-15 mins then there is no more smoke. It seems to be coming from around the turbo area. There r no obvious signs of a leak. We r thinking it may be dripping straight onto the exhaust at other times and burning off. Could it b a turbo seal or line? if so is it hard to fix? Turbo seems to run fine.


White smoke is usually coolant, oil is usually a blue color, most turbos r cooled by coolant so U may have a coolant leak in the turbo, may B a seal or crack in the turbo. Check your coolant level occasionally to C if it drops. ... 1997 Subaru Impreza

I bought a 1989 Jeep Cherokee 2 dr 4x4. Today the power steering got hard and the alternator light on the panel turned on, when I accelerate the problem goes away until it lowers RPM's when I got home from a 10 minute ride there was pressurized water coming out from the hose in the coolant reservoir. Any clues? I think it could be a crankshaft pulley problem.

I have a 1996 Honda Accord with a non V-Tec 4 cylinder that stalls when I do a fast deceleration and come to a stop. I can cruise along, hit the brakes hard to come to a stop, as it comes to a complete stop, it sputters and shuts off. Then it is hard to start back up right away. The idle speed is where it's supposed to be. It almost feels like it maybe floods over somehow. I'm not sure. The fuel pump is new, new plugs and good fire on all of them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Check the power brake booster for holding a vacuum. It may have a small leak when the brakes are not applied and a larger leak when they are applied. Check the EGR valve for sticking open or for a leaky vacuum diaphragm. ... 1996 Honda Accord

Im not sure if this is my problem here or not. my problem is if you barely push the brake in the brake lights will not come on and you can not put it in gear. How ever if you push hard on the brake you can put the car in gear and the brake lights come on, but you have to push really hard. i am thinking its the brake sensor but i can not find where this is located. its for a 1996 mercury grand marques

My 2001 Elantra is not shifting right. Sometimes it work just fine. Other times it wants to shift hard from 2nd to 3rd. After that it remains in 3rd till I turn off engine. Even when I slow down or stop it stays in 3rd or Drive. At 55 mph it revs at 3000 rpm, should be 2000 rpm. My alternator is also squealing when I start up the car. Do you think the alternator is not providing enough power to let transmission shift correctly or do you think this is a speed sensor issue. Again sometimes car
