Just wish your part discriptions were more then the part number. Price is a big part of my buying criteria. I though I ordered the main belt along with the alternator. Turned out to be the air conditioning compressor. A few words in the discription beyound the part number would help... I don't keep a manufacture part number cross reference in my back pocket.

Decent part

Alternator fit and was easily to install. Looks just like OEM. However, at full load at idle, it fails to maintain 13.5 volts. Voltage runs down to 12.5 until RPMs come up...Read complete review

Alternator fit and was easily to install. Looks just like OEM. However, at full load at idle, it fails to maintain 13.5 volts. Voltage runs down to 12.5 until RPMs come up above idle. It will work, but not at idle.

  • Short life span

Best Uses

  • Everyday Driving

Comments about Driveworks Alternator - Remanufactured - 105 Amps:

This alternator was easy to install, according to my husband, but it went bad in 33 days, which seemed like some sort of record, and I was on a highway out of town when the battery light came on. The other problem was that when I initially ordered it online, I put in my car's make & model, and three so-called choices popped up. The one I chose of the three turned out not to be correct for my car, so the discount I received for doing the transaction online was lost, which was quite aggravating.

        A:

        The difference is just the design and how many amps it puts out. Usually, you want a high amperage alternator if you run more accessories or plan to run more accessories.

      • A:

        For my 2001 Silverado Z71 with 5.3L, I replace alternator with a 130 amp. The Z71 must have came with a 105 amp alternator because the serpentine belt was too short by about 3/4". I had to buy a longer belt but everything works.

        If you don't know, it wouldn't hurt to use the higher amperage alternator to be on the safe side.
