    Alternator problems

    Resist the temptation to wash the alternator out with petroleum products as it degrades the insulation of the windings. Use a product that is made for washing electric motors such as CRC electroclean Cheers Bri

    If you do it yourself avoid the temptation to wash the electric motor out with petroleum products as it will shorten the life of the motor. It degrades the varnish on the windings. Cheers Bri

    I've had my 4.8 TI for about 6 months & find it good. Plenty of power to keep up with the traffic, it went well towing a trailer of concrete blocks (about 500 KG) didn't notice it on the back much. Fuel consumption isn't too bad for the size of the car I get about 16.5 L/100 km (my TJ wrangler...

    Whats the go.....someone HELP!!!

    Don't use a petrolium based water dispersant on alternators or starter motors because the petrolium can break down the insulation on the windings over time and can lead to a premature failure. It wouldn't have been the water causing your problems as the alternators are open and the insides...
