Q: I think I need a new alternator for my F150. Please read below and help. Thanks on 1996 Ford F-150

I have a 1996 Ford F150, 6 cylinder, 4.9L engine, that needs a good tune up and possibly an alternator. Tell me the parts it will need and I'll purchase them and you fix it for me. Give me a good fair deal so I can get my truck back on the road. I need it to pass inspection. The last time I took it to a shop, I had a lot of error codes pop up and the inspection failed. The times I have driven it the battery indicator gets lower and lower and the interior lights get dim and the truck starts to lose power. Not sure what it needs but I need a good FAIR repair done. What I DON'T NEED, is someone looking to line their pockets with my hard earned money. I can't afford the Ford dealership, but I'm not looking for a 'quick fix' either. I want it done right. ARE THERE ANY FAIR MECHANICS OUT THERE THAT CAN WORK ON A FORD AND GET IT ON THE ROAD? Email, text or call 546-2668. I can give you more information when you contact me. Thanks.
