well to make sure it is the laternator start the car and pull the positive battery cable. if the car dies it is the alternator. and usually even on the new cars. it is easy to get to. just look at the front of the hood for the belt diagram and it will tell you how to release the belt.

sounds like you have a blown head gasket this would explain loss of coolant and running poorly excessive smoke.

IF the alternator is not putting out anything. The car will run till the battery is not able to produce enough to fire the ignition, then it will die, It wont restart either. Jumping it will start it for 5 or ten minutes, this is with no warning either.

hello, it sounds like the alternator is the problem, most auto parts stores can check the alternator/charging system at no charge without removing it from the truck, I'm sure you will find that the alternator needs to be replaced.

These are all signs of a bad alternator. The car is running off of only the battery. The alternator charges the battery and keeps the car running. When the alternator quits charging the car will run fine until the battery dies. Then you can jump the battery and charge it, and the car will run fine until all of the electronics and lights run the battery down again.

Please help. I have a 96 toyota camry le that keeps dying on me. At first the battery light came on and then shortly after the car died. We had the alternator tested and it was bad so we put a new one in....


You need to get someone who knows how to use a Multimeter. It is a device that registers how much voltage, is present at your battery when your alternator is charging. Anyone can use one of these tools and they are cheap to buy, just add some AA batteries. Put the negative lead on the negative battery terminal and the positive lead on the positibe battery terminal, set the device to read Voltage and read the display that tells you how much voltage is present when the car is off, then on, and when you turn on different accessories like head lights, AC, etc. your alternator should produce more Voltage with each new thing you turn on. You will see this voltage go up as you read the multimeter on the battery terminals. If you don't see the Voltage go up the alternator is bad.

Now, likely a new alternator should be good, and you said you had the batter tested, hopefully they knew what they were doing. Lastly, I would unhook the aftermarket stereo for a week or two and see if that solves the problem. Also you should check all connections to the battery and to the alternator to make sure there isn't anything loose, that was the problem on my car, the alternator conector was loose and wiggeling and caused the battery light to come on intermittently. Hope this helps you out!!!
