sign of alt going out?
couple weeks ago i had to replace my battery, its a 01 original hottest summer on record yeah it died on me. i noticed last year that if i nailed it at about 5grand it would start flashing the battery light, back off and it was fine. today it started doing it if i went over 2500 rpm. driving at 2k was fine anything above it and i could see my dummy volt meter go down. before i thought it was just belt slippage..was actually going to buy a new belt this weekend.
so with the information told does it sound like the alt is going out on me?
if so what is a good replacement? i looked at advanced auto and autozone site..forgot how much they were.
what other models could i use for a higher output, there is a good ford junkyard close to me might try them.
