New to Site, Help Would be Most Appreciated;)

Hi all -

I recently purchased a 1991 300e. Gentleman told me car ran great, just needed a paint job. Two towns down the highway, the car cut off and can't keep a charge. Had the battery and alternators checked, both are good. Loud squeal from the belt as well, and belt appears to be very loose, although mechanic told me it was fine. I can charge the batter and get from place to place, but need a jump once I turn the car off. Also, car has begun to overheat, but will run very high, then go back down. As I just purchased the car, I cant not afford, at the moment, to take it to the dealer. But I do feel as though, if I can get past this, it would be a great car. When it runs, it does run great! Any thoughts/suggestions/questions? Thanks so much in advance for all your help . . . this seems like a great site, would have never known about it!

Welcome to Benzworld and I would suggest you tighten the fan belt.
