I have a 1986 2.5 w/ac and auto. My question is it seems like when the alternator is cycling to charge the the belt squeals. I think that is ccausing the erratic idle when sitting at stoplights also. I do not drive the car much at night but last ight I was out and with the headlights on it didn't seem like I could get the belt to stop squealing. When I turned the lights off everything was normal with no squealing. Could the alt. be bad? How hard are they to replce? It looks like a bear of a job.
