There is no oil in a relay, do you mean its melting ??. Also does the battery light come on or do you just loose a charge on the battery ??

Well yes I really believe that would have an inpact.
So you replace your alternator, but find out where the oil is from and stop the leakage. The leakage may come from the valve cover.
Have that checked out

Where does ignition power come from to. Fuel pump relay?


If there is no oil pressure or the alternator is not working, the fuel pump won't either. Check the oil pressure sender and the alternator for a problem there.

Check relay in relay box. May have surged and overheated. As quick check, should be another relay in box that you can sweat s p out to see if that's problem.

I'm trying to narrow down why my alternator isn't putting out to the battery (alternator is NEW), I have some relays that i'm trying to replace (but they have no markings) and i'm wondering if they could...


There are fusible links between the alternator and battery that you need to check. See wiring diagram and some relay location picks from autozone.com

It runs like ****! have replaced a fuel filter;


Did you try a 3 stage injector cleaner and intake snake. Cleans throttlebody of carbon. I had to push a truck into the shop because it would barly idle did all that and it did wonders. Guy squaked the tires leaving because of the power that was given back. Also high mileage oil, Full synthetic on older motors can cause pan gasket sweats.

HAVE SMALL OIL LEAK FROM TOP OF ENGINE BLOCK DRIPPING DOWN BY SIDE BLACK VERTICAL COVER TO CAM BELT/ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT. SOMETIMES DROPS ON EXHAUST AND SMELLS. HAD ROCKER COVER GASKET REPLACED 15 MONTHS...


is that a typo
should it be 1996 FIAT PUNTO 55S

degrease the engine with off the shelf products

if leak is confirmed from the top of motor

redo rocker cover seal with silicon
see if that slows the leak
cam seals may not have been replaced when you thought they were

grating noise at belt could be idler bearing

oil leak onto exhaust and smoking
real engine seal . sump

Just fitted new alternator but battery light not working


That indicator is commanded by a relay connected to the alternator. Check the wires and the relay. Or it may be just a burned bulb.

My fuel pump dosen't work all the time and i just replace it.


There are 2 connectors on the alternater. The round one has 3 wires. If there is no voltage on the green wire when the engine is running the alternator is bad. I'm not sure what fails internally but the alternator can put out fine charging voltage on the main black lead and not have voltage on that green wire. That wire is a trigger for the fuel pump relay. Voltage goes to the main power relay then to idiot lights in the dash then back to trigger the fuel pump relay. Along the way it goes in and out of the oil pressure switch(sender at the back bottom of passenger side of block with 2 yellow wires). This switch cuts voltage to fuel pump if no oil pressure. The green wire from alt is a safety in case of collision ect. Engine not running> no alt voltage on that wire>no fuel pump pressure>no fire. If this wire is bad it will not show up on the standard auto store test. And is a common failure. I had an brand new Isuzu rebuilt OEM alternator that was bad like this.
