2000 chev silverado 1500 5.3 liter alternator keeps going bad
\015 184,000 miles. First of all, I am one owner and kept maintenance on my truck. I have had no major porblems at all. Hope this is an easy one.\012About a year ago I had to change my alternator and battery cause it was bad. Then I notice about 6 months later that battery was bad so I exchanged it. Later, maybe 3 months later (3months ago) the batter was bad again. jumped the batt off took the pos cable off and it died. Took the alternator off and to the auto store had it checked it was bad. Changed it and got a new battery. Now, battery dead, AND alternator is bad again. What is causing my alternator to go bad..\015
I believe there are 2 alternator's for that 5.3 i think you need the one with the higher amps. I had the same problem and went with the higher amp alternator and i have not had a problem that was 3 years ago.
