Question about 1992 Chevrolet S-10
My 1992 Chev pick truck has a rattlingn shaking noise ...it seems like the alternator is shaking and causing this noise; a friend of mine put a new alternator in my truck not to long ago....could he have installed it incorrectly?
Yes sounds like he may have, there is a sleeve/bushing that comes with the new alternator and it is sometimes a pain to get the new one to fit and many inexperienced mechanics think it is not needed. the bolt will slide through that sleeve and make a smooth and tight fit if not installed what probably happened is that it was tightened and worked for a wile just fine then the alternator loosened from the vibration and now has room to vibrate the sleeve if you have the box the alternator came in is like a brass looking color and is a tube with a **** cut in the side running the length of the tube. hope this helps should be no problem to just take alternator partially out again and slide it in and fix it right good luck message if you need anything
