Re: Battery Dead. Jumped car and it died while driving

Fired right up this morning with 14v at idle and 13.75 under load. This is probably how the alternator was functioning beforehand so I didn't damage it but I'm assuming that's a low reading so I'll...

Re: Battery Dead. Jumped car and it died while driving

Does that mean the alternator could be damaged from the short or that the alternator just didnt do anything?
I'll be starting it in a few as soon as the battery is done charging.

I'm not sure which wire was for which part of the starter but I remember putting the purple wire back into the small nut. Then the 2 thicker wires back under the 13mm nuts. Which one connects the...

Re: HELP! Can't get strut back on car!

That's a good idea I'll try this tomorrow. Where would you place the pry bar on the strut to push it. Also when would I bolt it to the knuckle I'm guessing before using the pry bars

Re: What's the " best" year S-series?
