Comments about Driveworks Alternator - Remanufactured - 60 Amps:

The alternator doesn't work all the time, it didn't charge the battery and it died, I went to two places to get it tested and they said that that the alternator is good, after I put it back on and put a tester on the terminals it showed that it doesn't work and then later that it does. Worst garbage ever. I hate these car part stores, better off buying it on line from a USA manufacturer

      Comments about Driveworks Alternator - Remanufactured - 60 Amps:

      Bought this because it was in stock and the online write up seemed to describe a great product. This alternator failed in the first 6 or 8 months on a vehicle that gets driven about once a month. Actual miles were under 500 before failure. According to my gauges volts/amps jumped significantly a number of times during failure which might have caused damage on a newer vehicle. This is on an old truck so I just lost a headlight. I don't recommend this alternator to anyone.

      Comments about Driveworks Alternator - Remanufactured - 60 Amps:

      A word from me, DO NOT BUY THIS ALTERNATOR AND LEAVE THE STORE UNTIL YOU HAVE THEM DO I TEST ON THE MACHINE, i bought one took it home and installed it and got stranded in the middle of know where, because this alternator failed on me it the woods,i returned it and got another one had them test it before i left, and guess what that one failed also, so we will see if the third one's a charm or not tomorrow morning, BUT ALSO REMEMBER YOU GET WHAT U PAY FOR, THAT GOES WITH EVERYTHING IN LIFE.You buy cheap [*] you get poor quality things that will disappoint you in the end,it will most likely break,but that does not mean you don't buy cheap things and they won't be good,just don't do it on the things that count like a alternator.

          A:

          Hi Dunde, tricky question! The possible cause of the issue could be with the alternator. However, this needs a mechanic's expertise to determine. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

      • Q:

        The website says this part is an "Exact Fit" for my 1988 Ford Ranger with a 2.9L V6 engine. But, The mounting holes are in different locations, there are plugs on the one in my truck and this has terminal posts. How is this supposed to be installed as an exact fit if it is not the same?
