How tight or loose should alternator belt be?
I bought a 1991 Honda Accord with 121000 miles on it. The car is in pristine condition --- previous owner also had every receipt for every repair made to car including oil changes and general check ups. Anyway 1 month after purchase car would not start, battery dead. I had battery checked and it needed to be replaced, battery was original. Replaced battery and all okay for about 1 month, then the new battery was dead. Is this possibly an alternator thing or maybe even the alternator belt? I read in the manual I should check the alternator belt for wear, tear and tension. All belts on the car are brand new, but I did check anyway and it is new, however what should the tension be. Thank you
