I've worked in a variety of hands-on professions and love to write about topics that can save readers from needless expenses. Diagnosing alternator problems can be a bit tricky because the electrical system in a car comes from two places, the battery and the alternator. I'll give you a little background so you can understand what both systems do.
I just bought a ford zx2 2. The only problem with it was the alternator. I am in the process of taking it out but I am having trouble getting the belt off.
The Escort was Ford's leading compact car for many years, replacing the Ford Pinto as an alternative for the other full-size models of its time. There were three types of engines used in the Ford Escort, and the alternator was placed in different locations depending on the engine and year of manufacture. Open the hood and remove the negative battery terminal from the battery by loosening the clamp nut with a box-end wrench.
The alternator is an essential part of the engine, powering the battery and helping to keep the electrical system functioning properly. If you suspect there may be a problem you should take it to a qualified mechanic immediately. The work itself is quite straightforward, so the cost for labor is normally quite low in comparison to other automotive services.
Reader Question Hey Austin, My sister recently gave me a Ford Escort for my 16th birthday that she had previously owned. Within a month the alternator blew and my battery was slaughtered because of it. A friend of mine who knows alot about cars then charged the battery and installed that and it worked for about a week. Then my car wouldnt start one morning so I figured that the previous bad alternator sucked the life out of my battery so then I replaced that as well, and just today, my brand new 3 day old battery has died on me yet again…but this time at an intersection.
