I have a100 amp alternator and putting 4-130 watt off road lights and the vehicle on it 98 Chevy blazer

Do the maths and talk to an accredited auto electrician but I am sure that the alternator will be too small for what you want to do
the formula is I(amps)= P(watts) divided by volts
4 lights at 130 watts each =520 watts divided by 12 volts =43.3
amps extra for the alternator to handle. AS most alternators currently run at 90% capacity with normal vehicle operations you will need a bigger alternator. I would consider using a band of LED lights as they have more light than the 130 watts will provide and use just a few amps thereby not requiring a new alternator. Do your home work .the price of a new alternator and wiring ,relays etc against the LED lights. More light , lighter bracketry and no relays.

I have to replace the alternator on 2004 Dodge Intrepid 2.7 ltr. Mechanic is telling me I need a 160 amp alternator and 3 car part stores and 2 other mechanic shops are telling me the 2.7 ltr engine...

Run your Vehicle VIN # at a dealers parts counter,
to get the as built answer

Then buy the alternator at the parts store or online,
or fix yours

If you go to Rock Auto- you will see that no alternators
for your car cost more than $160.00

There is only one listed at 160Amp for the other motor

Try a different shop & trust the parts stores

Start at the dealer & get the correct info,only

I need to replace the alternator for my wife's 2003 Lexus RX300. Do I buy a 100 amp or a 130 amp alternator, and does it matter?

you need take old alternator with you to auto parts stores they can match up your alternator give you the correct AMP TYPE, your alternator amps is stamped on the out side alternator housing, the auto parts store can look up right amp alternator for your vechicle.when you say dont matter yes it does if you get wrong type alternator, your battery wont have good charge causing alternator fail early and battery fail early.

Need to change out alternator for 2003 ford expedition eddie bauer, do i put on 110 amp or 130 amp alternator

110 amp is factory for your truck, but i would go with 130 amp just in case you want to add more accessories to your truck such as aftermarket stereo, amplifier, and speakers. It makes no difference, other than if you add more accessories, you'll have the power there, but the 130 will work.

I need an alternator for a 1998 ford e250 do i know what amp. it should be. i see 2 types, 95 amps and 130 amps

The 95 amp is fine, the 130 is for cars equipped with lifts sirens multiple flashing lights, or just a lot of other accessories. If you have a basic van the 95 amp is what you need until you start using or needing power for other sources.

2000 ford windstar check charging system light stays on when I just replaced the alternator and the battery, and both have been checked again after installation

If it's a 3.8 it should have a 130 amp alternator. Sounds like you have a 110 amp alternator and not putting out enough amperage. Ecm thinks that since it's only getting 110 amps instead of 130 amps, something is wrong, so it's warning you that there is a problem.
