Default would this cause that ?

my car seems to be getting really hot lately. its a 06 impala

i think that my alt is on it way out, (winny) voltage is still good tho.

question is could a bad alt cause my car to over heat ?

what ya think ? I dont have the time to tear in to it and its pouring out

got a spare alt but woundering if I should bother trying it


let me know what ya think

You might be getting alot of drag out of the alt that is causing the motor to have to work harder to keep RPMs up?

whens the last time u checked the coolant or changed it?

i put in a lower temp T-stat in my truck to bring the temp down. another thing try spraying water thru the radiator it could be cloggin up with dif elements.

i dont thing a baring going out or just a bad alt. will drag yer motor hard enuff to rise yer temp that noticeable on the gauge

Not to argue, but you would be suprised. Might try running you car for a bit and putting you hand on/near the alt to see if its getting hot faster than the motor. They will get warm but you should always be able to put a hand on them. Just don't get a finger or something cought in the belt. That might ruin your day.

the overflow is empty... just checked it.

I hope its not a freakin head gasket or something like that.... hmmm ?

the "hot" is when it pegs the gauge and the HUD says overheat turm off motor.

guess I will look in to a coolant change, I got a warrenty on the motor till 100,000 (cars got 55k now) so if its a engine issue its covered, I just dont want them sayin "its cause of your sterreo..... bla bla bla "


at 55k..... guess it could use a coolent change... but I wouldnt think so

and it idles fine so that is why i think that the alt couldnt be it..... cause if it was really bad to draw the motor down I would think it would stall at idle

how about your drive belt, have you changed it out? might be slipping causing some issues and making things run hot. i have an 07 impala and have 34000 miles on mine, just installed my new ho alt about two weeks ago and my belt while i was at it. it's a good thing i did my old belt was trashed as a i took the belt off i noticed that the old belt was split down the center.big difference overall with the way the car is running since i changed the belt out.

if you hear a squeak noise it could just be a belt or tensioner, maybe water pump but im not sure if it runs off of the timing belt or drive belts on that car
