I needed an alternator fast as i was stranded. Advance had it in stock. When I looked at it, there was the Motorcraft logo stamped on the housing. I know that is quality instead of some Chinese junk so I felt good about that. The install on the Ford is easy. I only had a minimal set of tools and only had 1/4" drive ratchet (shame in me I know). I was still able to change it out easily. It could have been bad as it was 98 degrees out. Fortunately I was able to move the truck under a tree in the shade. I had to use a pipe wrench on the tensioner to get the belt off. The Ford designers put the alternator on top of the engine so access was easy. Cranked up right away and all gages back to normal and no more problems.

      I compared prices with other sellers, and Advance had the best deal, so I purchased alternator online and picked up at store. Very simple and easy. They had part waiting at register for me. Simple transaction, in and out in a few minutes. Great part. No complaints. I even got a discount online by using a special code available for purchases over $100. I'm happy, thanks to Advance Auto.

          Great part. I was happy to see that the part is a Rebuilt Motorcraft alternator. This was an easy fix too. I actually installed it in a gas station parking lot with minimal tools.

              First one I purchased and installed didn't work. Exchanged it and the second one works fine so far. I would recommend getting it tested before you leave the store and have the same frustrating problem

                      2006 Ford F-150 w/5.4L engine, alternator.
                      Easy replacement. 30% online discount can't beat that...!!!
                      Price was competitive with all others. Had folks from the store check my electrical system and helped pinpoint what the problem was without requiring to buy additional parts.
                      Part I bought was a remanufactured alternator. Replacement only required removing the air filter box. Remove 4 bolts and loose 2 bottom bolts. Remove old alternator and place new one.
                      Will come again...!

                          All the replacement alternators for my 2005 5.4 F150 seem to be rated at 110 amps. The original window sticker on my truck listed mine as a 130 amp unit. Are 130 amp units available?

                          if I check the voltage output and it is below 12v, should I change the altenator or could the problem be something else?

                            It is most likely the alternator. With out the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it. We would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis.

                            With the engine off, check the battery voltage. Note this value.
                            Now start the engine and check the voltage across the battery if it is 13.8 or more then the alternator is good and the battery needs to to load tested. If the voltage is the same or lower then the alternator needs to be tested. Advance Auto can do these tests for you. Note you will have to remove the battery and or alternator before testing.

                            The construction allows one to produce more amps than the other. Higher amp alternators are used for vehicles that run more accessories than other vehicles of the same make.

                            Well it seems to me to be 5 amps.
                            The more amperage a alternator is rated for simply means it can handle a larger load. If you have a lot of accesories or haul a trailer then get the higher rated one.
