Question about 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Dodge 1500 Ram van with a 5.2L V8. I recently replaced the alternator & now if I turn on the A/C the serpinetine belt starts to squeal and the voltage guage starts to drop into the discharge range, then bottems out & the "check guages" light comes on. If the A/C is off the problem doesn't occur. Any tips on what to look for? Thanks in advance...

2000 Dodge Ram Van 1500 Overheats with A/C on


Condenser & Radiator could be very dirty on the outside,
as well as have leaves,feathers,etc between them
The radiator may just need to be replaced, as it is old &
clogged inside
The thermostat may need replacing
Exhaust Converter is surely worn out & partially blocked,
as they only last 12 to 14 years
Spark Plugs,if in there over 3 years,check for cylinder
misfires & fuel trim data
A/C System Overcharged or Air in there, from trying to
add to a leaking system

How do you replace an alternater in a 1997 dodge ram 150 truck


Hi,

You will be needigng the below;

  • New alternator
  • Socket wrench set
  • Torque wrench

  • Determine which alternator your Dodge Ram will need. You'll want to be sure the new alternator is compatible with your Ram's engine. A Dodge Ram made after 2001 may be equipped with a 3.7 L, 4.7 L, 5.7 L Hemi V8, 5.9 L Magnum V8, 5.9 L Cummins diesel, 6.7 L Cummins diesel, 8.0 L Magnum or 8.3 L Viper engine.

    Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Remove the accessory drive belt and disconnect the wiring harness from the alternator. You will also need to remove the support bracket with a socket wrench for 3.7 L, 4.7 L and 5.7 L engines.

    Take the mounting bolts off of the alternator with a socket wrench and remove the alternator assembly.

    Install the new alternator assembly. If you have a 3.7 L engine, tighten the horizontal bolts to 42 foot pounds and the vertical bolt to 29 foot pounds with a torque wrench. Torque the long horizontal bolt and vertical bolt to 41 foot pounds and the short horizontal bolt to 55 foot pounds for a 4.7 L engine. Torque the mounting bolts to 30 foot pounds for all other engines.

    Connect the wiring harness to the alternator, install the accessory drive belt and connect the negative battery cable.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck.

    Hoe to Replace an alternator on a 1996 Dodge Ram Van 2500 3.9L V6


    Remove negative battery cable.
    Remove the electrical plug and wireing. Mark them.
    Loosen the alternator pivot bolt.
    Remove the bolt that attaches the alternator to the adjustment arm.
    Rotate the alternator to loosen the drive belt and disengage the belt from the pulley. Be careful that any spacers that are used in mounting are kept with their original bolts. This will make correct reinstallation much easier.
    While supporting the alternator remove the pivot bolt.
    Remove the alternator from the vehicle.
    Do the reverse procedure to install new alternator.
