Re: serpentine belt broke - need help
Well pulled out the alternator today and it was shot. Opposite the pulley the shaft and bearings were exposed and some of the bearings had fallen out. There was shreds of metal everywhere as well. Got an alternator at the junk yard for $35 and a belt at Auto Zone, put them on, and the Tempo is back on the road! I made the boy do some of the work. It was his first time under the hood so he wasn't able to do much.
