So basically in my car there’s 3 drive belts. The one that goes over the alternator I’ve been having issues with. It has broken twice and now I think it’s getting ready to break a third time. The second time it broke, after replacing I took my car to a mechanic to have it looked at because I really did not want to deal with this issue anymore, but now the belt is starting to squeal a lot like it was last time, and I checked the belt and noticed it’s gotten WAY loose. So maybe that’s been the issue all along is that the belts are just getting loose until flying off and breaking or something like that. Another thing worth noting is that sometimes when I first time my car the power steering seems ‘choppy’. Like not completely smooth steering wheel turning it’ll stop for brief moment in the turn. I’m not totally sure if this is just when the car has just started or just at low speeds in general.
Anyways I want to know what would be causing this, what I should look at, and how I can fix it.
