I think I need a new alternator. My car died while I was driving, and my new belts make a squealing sound when I start my car or make a sharp turn.
It could be that your belts are not adjusted properly. The alternator is belt driven, so a correct belt adjustment is required for proper alternator operation. A qualified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, will be able to diagnose and repair your problems.
