The bolt on the bottom of my alternator fell and is lost, i have to know the size of it to replace, anyone know the answer?

Use one of the other alternator bolts for testing, see if the threads are the same on the other bolt hole. If the bolt is a little long or short, just get a different length bolt from the hardware store.

If nothing else, use a tap and die set. If enough meat around the hole, drill the hole and retap the threads. Just a thought.

What are the bolt sizes that bolt the alternator to the lower bracket and the lower bracket to the block on a 2002 Isuzu Trooper?

No one will have that info

A long shot-- would be to spend time at
a dealers parts dept & look at the computer,
for the answer

DO NOT-- buy bolts from a dealer at $8.00 to $15.00 ea,
when Lowes,Sears Hardware,etc, have them in Metric,all sizes
& lengths for .70 ea

I have a 2001 pt cruiser. I'm changing the crank

ok this is tough, im assuming the bolt has broken and your left with the removel of the threaded end of the bolt. the only thing i can think of is to drill out the center of the bolt with a smaller sized drill bit about 2 to 3 sizes smaller than the actual bolt shaft [make sure you center the hole as best you can so not to marr the threads so the new bolt will tighten properly] this will take alot of cutting oil as you drill try to go in at least half the bolt length. then you will need to tap the new hole with a LEFT HANDED TAP slighty bigger than the drill bit used to make the hole. [ again i dont know the size of bolt we are talking about] then with a left handed bolt start the bolt in your new threades. because you are tightining turning to the left as the new bolt bottoms out it will be loosening the broken bolt. i dont know how much room you have i beleave this is on the backside of the motor.. again i hope this helps i have done this before on various equipment and it works for me [most of the time] good luck

My alternator is missing the bolt that mounts it to the block.... its apparently been gone and is causing the alternator to sit about a 1/4 inch crooked which is causing squealing and breaking belts.....

just go to a salvage yard or junk yard and ask them to get a bolt from them in one of there cars of your make and model and year so they might just give it to you for free if they have your car there. Also autozone might help in telling you the bolt size too.

I need to know the bolt pattern for my 2001 dodge ram 5.2L water pump .I know there are diferent sized bolts but i dont where they go

It can be tough keeping them all straight in order. The bolt that needs the 47 star socket goes on top just to the right of the hose behind the pump. I can't tell you all their lengths but they should all be the same thread and bolt size. Just try them with the pump held in place before you put any sealant on the gasket. Each should have at least a half an inch of so of length sticking out for tightening purposes.
I write on the heads with permanent marker as I take them out going clockwise. Just remember where number one goes and the rest follow in order.

It pays to clean off the threads with a wire brush. Some of them get pretty grungy.

2002 chevy impala 3.4 engine - egr valve bolt size? I was changing the EGR valve and somehow i misplaced the 2 bolts that secures the egr valve to the engine (not the 3rd bolt that secures the exhaust...

I do not know,but 8mm is used most,the length you may can figure out,but go to the parts house,and ask for2 bolts 8mm 1.25 thread,at 25 mm long,and ask for 8mm 1.50 thread,and 25mm length,and cover your bases,they are not that high in price,if some one has them,this way you can go by this,Look at the e g r valve to make sure you can get the bolts in the holes of the e g r valve,cause the heads of the new bolts will ,no doubt be larger than the ones that came out of it,the bolts are a general,or generic if you will,and will work if you can get them in the e g r valve,and use a wrench to screw them in,

Where is the starter located on a 2001 mitsubishi galant

First disconnect the battery. Next remove the flat, angular heat shield from the starter itself (1x 8mm nut and 2x 8mm bolts). Do NOT try to remove the heat shield from the Exhaust pipe - it can't be removed with the starter in place and it's not necessary anyway. Next remove the oil filter. You'll loose a few ounces of oil so be prepared for that with a drain pan and either cover the removed filter to keep debris out or replace it and remember to check the oil level later. Remove the small signal wire from the solenoid (released by pushing in a tiny lever with a finger tip) and also remove the 12mm nut attaching the positive battery cable to the starter. The starter is held in place by two 14mm bolts. On the engine (passenger) side, there is a 14x30mm bolt threading into the transaxle from the bottom of the starter. On the transaxle (driver) side, there is a longer 14x50mm bolt threading into the top of the starter.

How do I get the bottom bolt out of alternator for 2004 scion xb? I can't seem to get it loose.

There is a bolt on the bottom of the alt that holds it.
You should be able to use a 3/8" or 1/2" ratchet with a 12mm socket. (I only felt it, so I am guessing)
But 12mm seems to be a very common size for Scion and Toyota in general.

The bolt goes through two ears (or lobes) that are part of the engine block. The lobes are on either side of a "tunnel" that is part of the alt's housing. If it is too difficult, try shooting some penetrating oil into the back, where the threads are set into the lobe on the block.
Careful not to spray any into the alt itself.
