I had a similar issue with a broken alternator mounting bolt on the 2ZR--sheared off at the nut and allowed the alternator to sit a little crooked. Started throwing belts when I got on the gas. If the bolt is bent inside the mounting boss, you may have to pull the bumper cover and radiators out to get at it.
