First, put the Haynes away and download the online FSM from the following link.


Second, describe what problems that you're having. Vague questions elicit vague answers. I read through your other posts and they are as vague as this one. If you seriously expect any help, your questions need to be more detailed in both what the problem is and what you've done.

Exchanged my failed alternator to autozone after only having it for 2-3 months and while waiting for the slow service noticed that the pulley wobbled slightly when it spins, can that be caused by bad timing, a maybe bent eccentric shaft pulley, or maybe i didnt leave enough slack on the belt?
