How do I change alternator 2000 Ford contour ?


The alternator is one of the easiest engine parts to replace. The trickiest part is setting the tension on the serpentine belt once you\'ve installed it, though your vehicle\'s part may have a self-setting tensioner. You can watch any online video on how to change an alternator and it will give you all you need to know. I have replaced alternators on several vehicles in several non-garage locations including a street in NYC (which is illegal, so that should give you an idea of how quickly I got it done.)



Alternatively, if you have an Advance Auto Parts nearby, their employees replace batteries in customer vehicles for free and are often inclined to help people who show them courtesy and respect. At the very least, they can run a volt meter to your alternator and determine whether it\'s dead. (You will want to be very nice and hopefully proffer a tip to get this kind of above-and-beyond service; it\'s the right thing to do.)

Why does my car not have any power after i boost it and drive it?


Bad battery and/or alternator. Once it is running, test voltage coming from alternator with a multimeter. Should be over 13 volts. If not, alternator may be bad. If alternator is sending over 13 volts, battery may be bad. Possible bad connection between alternator and battery, but not as common.

Need new thermostat


Follow the radiator hose that goes to the top part of the engine. Where the hose meets the top of engine, that the Thermostat. Remove the radiator hose, then remove the two bolts from the thermostat housing, and gently pry up the housing, once freed, the thermostat is right there, just remove and replace with a rubber gasket, and replace the housing and hose, you should be good to go.

Change alternator


The car should be turned off it should be cool.Then follow this procedure. Park the car on flat surface.Block the back wheels of the car from getting rolled because the front portion of the car has to be jacked up.But before doing that disconnect the black wire of battery.Its necessary for safety reasons.Then raise the car by placing jack under the cross-member.Then after this the passenger side wheel has to be removed.Once the passenger side wheel is removed you will see the belt.Locate the tensioner to remove the belt. The tensioner is located under the alternator. Loosen the bolt with a socket wrench and this will loosen tension on the belt. Take the belt off the alternator pulley and the air conditioner pulley. Unbolt and remove the tensioner to make proper space to remove the alternator. After that there are few more parts that are to be removed to remove the alternator.So remove the air conditioner ,its fitted by two bolts easily seen.Remove this bolts.No need to remove the ac wires or any ac lines.Just lift the ac unit out and then remove the alternator cable from its back.You will also have to remove a nut bolt holding the wire.So remove that nut also,this will help to loosen the alternator wire.Then carefully wiggle and pull the wiring harness to the voltage regulator at the back of the alternator.Now the alternator can be removed.But its connected to the mounting bracket.The alternator is fitted by 3 bolts on mounting bolts.Once you remove this bolts the alternator can be lifted out from the bottom of the car. -------------- This is the procedure to remove the alternator.But for no problem while fitting the new alternator,i suggest you mark the location of each part with marker so that you dont face any kind of problem while refitting this parts again.You can also take a picture of each part before removing it.so that will help for any kind of alternator problem in future also.Do it slowly ,carefully and at day time ,so this will give you exact access of the parts.---------------Thanks.Helpmech.

I replaced the battery on my 1983 Pontiac Phoenix but it does not seem to hold a charge. Does it have a voltage regulator or is it an integral part of the alternator? Can I replace the alternator with...


Most likely the alternator will be the same between the two.The regulator is internal on the alternator but prior to doing this I would disconnect the negative cable and install a test light between the negative cable and the battery.If the test light illuminates brightly there is a parasitic draw draining your battery.Best way to find it is to start pulling fuses one at a time until the light goes out then note the fuse which put the light out. If the vehicle has any after market devices try disconnectiing those first ex radio,cb,radar detector. Once you find the circuit you will need to locate the components on that circuit.

VW Transporter, wastegate for turbo is seized, no power at all. can it be freed up, guy fixing it reckons it's abig job to get to it and if it can't be freed up it will be a waste of time?


I am told once seized it's toast. The waste gate and turbo are 1 piece and repair is $1,500. T.D.I.'s are cheap to drive until they have a mechancial problem.

As a protest I WILL NOT take my Jetta to a VW dealer. I go to local garage at half the price.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
