In Topic: Couple Of Questions

16 March 2014 - 02:17 PM

Hi Guys,


Thought to bump up this thread.

What do you think, can the engine lose any power if there are bad pulleys and / or bad alternator?

Will it somehow affect anything to do with the engine?

Thanks Milton,


Yeah, I am same as you. If I do change something I want to make sure that I change everything and that I won't have to look into that area again for quite a while.

So if you do something - do it properly.


I though that it might be normal for the clutch pedal to vibrate but I think that it is getting worst and worst. Not sure though...


But as you said the clutch is connected to the engine and it might be that the engine is the one that's vibrating quite a bit hence the pedal is feeling same.


Just wondering, can the engine vibrate because of bad pulleys and / or bad alternator belt? Is it possible that engine will loose any performance because of bad components in that area?

Thank you all for your help.

I will try to change the alternator in next couple of weeks.

Found some on ebay for £20-£30 and will ask my friend who is a mechanic to help me to change it.


Thank you for your help.

You could do it and you could pick an alternator off a scrappy or used car breakers for a lot less. Someone recently bought one for about £20, fitted it and it solved the problem. so I dont see it being too bad!

I tried to find some decent manuals online on how to change alternators but I couldn't find any.

Could you please point me into the right direction?

All I have done so far on my car is changed fuel injectors and spark plugs :) Nothing else really... =]

So everybody still thinks that this might be an alternator issue.

Problem is not in buying the alternator. Problem comes when you have to change it... =]

I can get a new alternator for my ford focus for £70 but then I will probably pay something around £100 just to install it...

Quite a costly job... :(


Unless this is something a noob could do? o_O
