View Full Version : alternator shuffle

I just had to replace the alternator in my 91 RR for the third time in about 8 years of owning the vehicle. This is excessive right? I saw the great post about checking all the grounds as preventative maintenance. I am going to do this. Any other suggestions on what might be causing these repeated alternator failures?

I too have replaced the alt three times in 6 years, I have since the last one disconnected the tacho, as it was always jumpy and only worked in the cold LOL (I live in Texas), Don't know if this was the cause? or what but number three has been in three years this way. A good thing that AutoZone is state wide. (life time warranty)

I have been into all the wires upgraded earths, and still number two failed.

So far so good. Hope this helps
