Well, the clatter I mentioned a week ago turned out to be the alternator. About six months ago, it was making an awful rattle sound. Turned out the key had come loose or fallen out.
The tech repaired it and everything seemed fine. Now it sounds like it's happening again. I was just going to replace the alternator. But, when I looked at the Fast Lane parts catalog (which is awsome!) I saw they sell an alternator pulley.
Do you all think this would fix the problem for good or am I better off to replace it completely? It's my wife's car and she wants to feel safe.
