Last week we went for a ride. Got to our destination, went to leave and the car wouldn't start, just clicked. Pop the hood and the alternator belt had snapped off. Got her jumped and back home.
After struggling to get both of the belts in the front changed, got both of them on. Charged up the battery with my battery charger and got her started. Let her idle while I took off the battery charger and closed up the hood. She stalled... She's always idled a little rough, but has never stalled on me.
Let her sit for the night and then put the charger on the car tonight and got her started. Decided to try and take her for a drive around the block. Got half way through my ride, about 1/3 of a mile, lost my lights and she stalled. Luckily I got her to start by rolling and popping the clutch (first time I've done that woo hoo) and got her home. The battery is dead again.
Do you think the alternator is bad or is there anything I can try.
Does a bad alternator have anything to do with the car stalling (I'm thinking not)
