Bought a replacement alternator but I am sending it back as I measured and have seen it running over 16.5V. The manual says the regulator should keep it to a max of about 14.5V. I put a brand new and fully charged battery in at the same time the alternator was changed, so I don't think the battery can be blamed. Also at the time I tested it, was running as little electrical load as possible, no lights, fan off, radio off, etc. The seller has accepted a return on the alternator, but also sent me this advice: "if you fitted this alternator to a vehicle with a flat or faulty battery it will perform eratically .

I have a truck on which the rear turn signals are not very visible when the parking lamps are on. So I am trying to get the parking lamps to turn off while the turn signal is on. Below is the wiring diagram that I am planning to use and I just need a professional confirmation that it will work. The bulb I am using draws 2.2 Amps. I have learnt from this forum that a regular auto relay which is 30A rated may be an overkill as the current draw of the coil is a couple amps. So I am planning to use this 10A PCB relay. https://www. e-sonic. com/product-detail/mode/505330.

My car hasn't done vast amounts of miles (short of 60000), but already at 30-40000 I would say I noticed it's ability to accelerate has dropped. It is still OK for my use and the fuel efficiency is good (60+ US mpg, 70+ UK mpg). I am guessing reasons would overlap with some of these causes, but wanted to ask somebody more knowledgeable than me. It is a standard turbodiesel (no common rail or variable vanes) with particle filter (DPF) and catalytic converter, manual transmission (and having read other posts here I think the clutch is fine). It is a 1422cc 3 cylinder engine with a balancing shaft, although I don't think that matters for the arguments.

I have a 2002 Grand Touring 600 se. For some odd reason there are no aftermarket manufactures who producing voltage regulators for my year and model of snowmachine. There are other models that have the same voltage regulator, but noone is selling any....My final option is to find a way to by-pass or look for an alternate solution....possibly a tansistor??? I don't know much about electrical...need help

Does anyone know what the (more or less) acceptable standardised range is, for the oil temperature of a car engine? I understand that 40-120 degrees C, seems to be the acceptable range for the engine coolant temperature, but whats the range for oil temperature? I have searched and searched for this, different sites give me different ranges based on the engine and oil type. Thanks for your time, Dan.
