Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Montero Sport
No, not unless the alternator is very small and you have a large battery that is well down in charge. The ideal alternator to battery size is 25%. This means that if the battery is 100 amp hour in size it should have at least a 25amp alternator. The problem only really arises in an RV or boat where a large house battery bank has been installed but the alternator size has not been addressed to cope. The damage done would be caused by an alternator working too hard and over heating.
