Question about 2001 Hyundai Elantra
I have a 2001 hyundia elantra, my battery started bubbling over, checked with voltmeter and its charging at 17.5 volts, replaced the alternator twice and still reading 17.5 while idling. is there any other electrical device that might be interfering with the charging system?
No do yourself a favour and fit a genuine BOSCH exchange unit ---bet you a pound to a penny this will cure the problem

You really need a test drive by a tech. Any shop should be able to do that and give you a firm (written) estimate. It might not be a big deal. Shop around if you need a rebuild, If you need one, ask about their warranty. Believe it or not, a good reference for a tranny shop is the Used Car Manager at the Hyundai dealership. Go in to ask him, not over the phone, and be nice. You're asking for a favor after all. Many dealers do a lot of their work outside the store for reasons of cost. It all depends on the dealership. One will, one won't. Ask.

The 12.2 volt reading to me would indicate a battery voltage only which is fine. However the 11.9 voltage would indicate to me how much voltage the starting system actually used from the battery supply voltage being the differance between the two amounts.I would do the following fully charge the battery one more time and take the same two readings over again and after taking the second reading turn on all the acessorries and if what i am thinking is correct the 11.9 volt reading will drop a consideral amount and possibly stall the engine. If this happens the voltage regulator in the alternator is not working.Take the alternator back, and trade it for a differant one. An alternator needs to be putting out at least 13 to 14.5 volts when under load to compensate for the load.Good Luck and have a good Xmass.
