Question about 1990 Toyota 4Runner
Once battery is charged it will start or it will start with a jump but will not stay charged. I believe it is the alternator. Any advise on changing the alternator will be greatly appreciated. It look like the distributor and the combustion air intake are in the way of changing the altenator. What do I need to remove to change the alternator? etc.
Could be a bad ground or just the alternator itself, i have a 90 4Runner and the alternator hasnt died yet but back on topic looks like you do have to remove the distributor and intake. To remove the alternator you need to remove your timing belt since its attached to it then there should be some bolts on the alternator around 2-3 which are usually attached to the engine directly or a mounting bracket once you've removed the bolts then it should come off. Or you could bring to a small shop or a dealer to fix it whatever you want to do :) Goodluck

It sounds like either the alternator is bad, or you need to replace the battery...you can have both checked at Autozone for free..............
