Everytime I start my car these days, it sounds like I have a supercharger under the hood with all the whining that comes from the alternator. Does this mean that it'll soon give out on me, or what? Thanks

Mine just did that saturday. I think it was just really cold. The squeel wouldnt go away hardly. It squeeled and squeeled, so I reved it up. I took it to 5k and then there was a loud POP, lights dimmed, then came back. No more squeel. Almost like the alternator was frozen or something. I dont really know. I figure if my batter goes dead quickly I will test the alternator also.
