The bearings are going out in my alternator. Ive been hearing some clicking for about a month now. Would this make my car lose power on take off. My car feels like its stalling out when i give it gas when i start, mostly when my car has just been started. Im changing it out this weekend, but im not sure its the alternator making my car do this. Also, when im on the interstate going a steady pace, i can feel under my feet and also hear what sounds like the engine rev slightly, but the RPM's dont change. It will rev for about 2 sec. and then stop and then rev again and it will continue to do this. Any ideas?

Change out the alt and see if it still boggs... As for the revs the only thing I would say might be sticky throttle or a warn clutch. Good Luck!
