2000 Cavalier 2.2: Put in new starter. 2 days & it

The battery and alternator may have been ok.
You have a fuse or fuseable link between the alternator and battery to protect it. If you have battery voltage at the battery post and not at the alternator post, there is a break in that circuit.
If the battery cable goes to the starter, the alternator wire may go from there and that could be where the fuseable link is.
Fuseable links are special thin wires that act like fuses.

You will need to replace that plug, the Toyota dealer has repair connectors to fix this, contact your local dealer, u will need the plug repair kit or the alternator will quickly malfunction from a type of "Jerry" rigged connections

When we first bought our 1995 Dodge Neon Sport from a friend we were aware that he had problems with the gages not always working correctly. The car has run well for almost a year and does not burn any oil...

I'm still not inclined to look past the area of the alternator. Check out the wiring going to the plug for the alternator for any signs of damage or broken insulation. Also, have an auto parts store test the alternator and while they are checking alternator output, move the wires around a litte and see if the output changes any. It sounds like a wiring problem to me. Hope this helps and good luck.

Randomly loses charge....after installing new alternator

It would appear that your truck has a bad ground connection between either the battery to the engine or a bad connection /wire between the engine and the body frame (most likely). the wire probably broke a long time ago and just by luck and mechanics the connection was made but now the vehicle is older the problem is getting worse. My best solution is to run a new wire between the body frame and the engine -that usually solves most issues. Make sure the contact points are super clean, down to bare metal on both ends!
