Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

So far this sounds like a concern with the belt slipping or the alternator output voltage spiking high or low briefly.

Is this a single event or does it happen multiple times once it starts occurring?
