Disconnect the battery, remove the drive belt and then disconnect the wires to the alt, then you will remove the rear support bolt, the front bolt and then the long pivot bolt, then alt slides out of bracket.

With charge up battery max voltage from alternator should be 14.4 volt check if you got battery voltage on the alternator therminal in the back of your alternator if you got the same voltage as your battery your alternator is no good you need to change your alternator if you put 1 in dont forget your battery need to be full charge

My car pudders it dies some time when im at a stop light but when i have it in -n- it settles down put also my apms go cray i put spark plugs on


apms ?? cray?? not sure what you mean here ,but i think you have a problem with idle as to the actual fault it is diffficult to diagnose with have a play or plugging it in ,but its a weak mixture on idle thats the problem so its either a sensor playing up or a vacumn pipe end split ,best advice i offer at this point is to ask a local mechanic to have a look

We changed the battery because nothing would come on, after changing the battery the new one died the same day, went to auto zone was told I needed a new alternator. Changed that today jumped the car and...


You may have received a faulty alternator from the store. I have bought alternators from AutoZone before and in one instance had to take it back 3 times before I got one that worked correctly. Also, you should not have jumped the car, you should have started it up on battery and alternator. That would have told you if the battery was drained or the alternator you had just put in was bad. If you put the drained battery back in the car to run it, the car would have died anyway. Whenever I have changed an alternator out I always let it run in the driveway for awhile to make sure that both the battery and alternator are functioning correctly.

Thismorning lights and blower flashed battery light came on voltage dropped to low. batt.light still on truck is starting and running fine.i put a voltage meter on batt.---reads 12.9--11.0. top bolt on...


Sounds like you may need an alternator.
If the batt is ok, could be the alt going out.
A local pep boys or equivalent can check free or inexpensively...
The voltage regulator is built in to the alternator... so if you change the alternator, you change the regulator too.

2001 Ford Windstar speedometer fuse keeps blowing


We had the same problem but when we put in a new fuse it smoked. It turned out to be something with the master cylinder and required the changing of a 20 dollar part by the mechanic and problem solved
