Hi, I've had an occasional burning smell from the engine compartment that makes it's way into the car when I run the heater with the fresh air setting on. This isn't always, but it's not infrequent enough to not notice. I have a 91 GT for 4 months now, and it's always done this. It's also always hade a kind of whining, howling noise from the engine compartment that escelates as I rev the eninge. Recently, I've debated the possibilites of this being a bad alternator bearing or a bad water pump. Tonight I noticed the battery light being on during my drive home. I suppose it could come from me charing my cell phone in the car all day and not removing it from the charger for 12 hrs, but that seems so small of a draw. The immediate thing I think of is a dying alternator, which makes me wonder if the noise is the bearing and the smell was the bearing as well. Any thoughts? Also, can I easily replace the bearings myself and keep the alternator, or is it similar in price ($80) for the replacement alternator?
