The power loss light goes on as a result of the alternator being bad.
Are you getting 'lifetime' guaranteed rebuilt alternators to replace the old ones?
If not, then the quality of the parts may not be good enough to run in your application.

Are the connections clean and shiny when removed?

It sounds like you have a defective alternator. The diode in the alternator my be bad and therefore not charging the battery. Have your mechanic test the alternator to confirm that that is the problem. If not the alternator, than your battery may be bad and not able to hold a charge. How old is your battery? More than 4 years old?

if the battery holds the charge for a day or 2 wile you drive the car normally then you should check your alternator live the car 2 or 3 days after the battery was charged and check if it starts and run if it does run it another 2 or 3 days and see if the battery dies if it dies most likely your alternator is bad, your mechanic can test it with in 3 minutes to see if it is the alternator or the battery

How do ichange the belts in my 1993 plymouth sundance is there a tension to loosen


Actually yes, there is a tension pulley that is spring loaded. You have to put a wrench on it and release the tension to change the main belt. The belt for the Alternator has an adjustment that is loosened and tighten with a socket. This one is usually located on the Alternator bracket.

87 Plymouth Sundance keeps stalling!


If you take the air intake hose off at the throttle body inlet, and when it won't start, try spraying WD-40 into the front of throttle body, with plate open, and then try again. If it starts for a second or 2, it's fuel related problem. Try that and let me know the results, and get back to me. Use the WD-40 same as you would quick start spray. What engine is in that , 6 cyl, or 4 cyl. ?
