Found a new problem driving home yesterday (in the rain). I was driving along and all of a sudden the tach drops to 0 and the battery light comes on. I pulled over and popped the hood but by that time it had gone back to normal. So about 5 miles later it did it again, but I just kept driving (I was almost home) and before it came back up I heard a belt squeeling. I figure that the alternator belt is slipping, but it is good and tight. Is it possible that the alternator is seizing up...or should I just make a better sheild so water can't get at it?

mine does the that too, but just the red battery and oxs lights come on. it is water splashing up and hitting the alternater. i need to make a shield so it quit doing that.
