How long does it take to start the engine when cold .
What colour smoke comes out the exhaust pipe when it does finally start up.
If you have tensioned the belt and still making a noise replace them .
This is why the battery light is staying ON for a few miles in the time of the belt noise .
If the top radiator hose is hot and the lower cold then remove and test the thermostat.
If its the first thermostat from new replace but still need to test . if its good check radiator for blockage.
Do a radiator flush if needed.
