Engine Ticking

So I think I've got either a pulley bearing wearing out or my alternator bearing is going out. Anyone know the price of either the pulley bearing or alternator for an 06 Balt? If it's the alternator, Is there a good place to get a decent one cheap or is it better to just got through the auto shop?

the timing chain tensioner is pretty common and can make a ticking sound. not that expensive to buy either

Yep! did mine two days ago. Huge difference! I recommend that if you do it, follow the instructions from the older tensioner tap it from under the valve cover to "activate" it. Some say the chain slap should trigger it but I thought better safe than sorry.

Well like i said before, im car-retarded sooooo.....i dropped it off at the shop this morning and told em to take a look at it. Im not what you would call "well off" financially, being a college student and all, so im really hoping its a relatively cheap fix.
