BAD temps. Specially if you get bad air bubbles in the system.

You have belts on both sides!?!

All temps have been steady freddy. Car warms up and cools down as usual and holds its operating temperature without a problem.

And ya, it has 2 belts I can only see one pulley on the driver side, the belt snakes down and under something and god knows where the belt goes on the passenger side, I still cant find the alternator

I don't know if this will help of not, but on PJ'* car, when the water pump was going or had gone (happened twice), the car made a moan/whine noise. As the RPM'* went up, the whine noise got louder for obvious reasons.
