2003 Ford Taurus Q&A

2003 Ford Taurus Question: will a noisy possibly faulty alt. cause stalling and engine lite to go on?

just put in new ign.coil ran good for a day now sounds really rough with chattering from alt. -
Answer 1
The pulley on the alternator has probably got a bad bearing. That would be the chattering. If the alternator itself is going bad, you will get a multitude of electrical failures all over the vechicle going in and out. Get alternator tested but with the bad pulley you will probably have to replace it anyway. -
Answer 2
have codes scanned to see if they pertain to low voltage issues -
