#879 of 2018 Alternator problems
Jul 12, 2005 (5:27 pm)
I have a 2000 Chevy S-10 Pickup with 82,000 miles. I have replaced the alternator 2 times and about to do it again this weekend. AARRGH! I can't figure out why I keep having this problem. The auto part store said that I might have just gotten 2 bad alternators...but I don't know. After I changed it the 2nd time I changed the tensioner arm, because it was causing my truck to lose power as well, and I was wondering if that could have done damage to my alternator. I also have replaced the fuel filter, fuel pump, battery, and the throttle postion sensor! This truck has had so many problems I would not recommend buying a Chevy! Anyway....any advice or help anyone can give me about my alternator would be very much appreciated!

Vehicle speed sensor or it's wiring.

Aftermarket overhauls are an issue, buy a new Delco or google for a larger Delco that will fit.

this ought to be an easy one, but i am not too "bright" when it comes to electricity. headlights are fine at low-beam, but when i switch to high-beam, the right-side light (passenger side) goes completely out. the left-side one goes high, so i suspect it's not the switch. i replaced the sealed-beam (it is a 1983), and that did not fix it, so i expect it is something between the switch and the lamp. my chilton does not have wiring diagrams.
this has been a hell of a truck. i have never had trouble with it and would not hesitate to drive it anywhere. it has 238k on it. i bought it with 59k in 1989, with the only major repair being head gaskets at about 85k. still has original clutch, carb, distributor, water pump, and i have worked it hard.

I was advising to a probable fix, never heard back from the guy. What is your problem and what have you done to it so far.

#888 of 2018 Extremely High Idle
Jul 15, 2005 (4:08 pm)
Hey I have a '94 S-10 with about 145,000 miles. I have had little to no problems with it after i replaced the alternator at around 100,000. Lately when i start the truck it will either idle at 500rpm, idle at the normal 800-1000 rpm, or just fly at 3000rpm. I checked for disconnected vaccuum lines and found nothing. If anyone has any ideas or has had this problem i would greatly appreciate some advice. Thanks
