Default I got the alternator in and it RUNS!!!

Thanks so much for this place.

Although I wouldn't recommend putting an alternator in in 10 degree weather. (i'm in NH)
And in the dark.
But I took it for a ride and it runs nice.
Will need to get an exhaust and the darn cd player gives me an error message, but thats minor.

I bet your husband is proud of you. If I ever tried to walk my wife verbally through a repair procedure on a car, I'm sure we'd be divorced by now.

let alone in 10 degree weather! even I'm a pu55y enough to take it to the shop in those conditions if not for a heated garage.

You guys/gals need to meet my wife. Since we've gotten to Germany, my wife has learned how to change the oil, do tires (complete from removing from car, removing old rubber, installing new rubber and balancing them), replacing brakes (both rotors and drums) and she even replaced her own control arms. She's even learned how to replace an exhaust manifold and o2 sensors. I think women that work on cars are sexy.

Only 10 degrees! My son and I replaced our alternator in zero degrees 2 weeks ago. Then, 5 days later the serpentine belt slipped off. Replacement was accomplished in the dark, in a parking lot, in -10 degrees! Had the pick-up truck parked next to it and worked in 10 minutes shifts. The air temp was cold. But the cold metal parts and tools were even worse!
