Scotty, I just heard from Goodyear about my Acura. They put in the serpentine belt, and fixed the bracket holding on the alternator. Now they're saying the car won't start. They're taking it apart now to look at the timing belt. On that day the serpentine belt snapped, we heard a loud pop sound, which was the serpentine belt, and after it snapped, I heard like a whirring noise that went louder as we went down the road. I then pulled into Goodyear 40 feet later as the car gradually lost power and parked it in a spot. Could the alternator have gotten damaged when the belt snapped?
no, but a broken alternator will break the belt,
