If the alternator belt is screeching it is best to have it replaced before either :

a) battery runs out leaving you stranded
b) belt breaks and may take out timing belt causing engine damage

The engine running slow may be connected or the throttle body may need cleaning.

Anybody know what it is?
The light couple with loss of power may indicate a coil failure
