Well first my heater core failed, didn’t even get it fixed yet and suddenly my alternator goes out going down the road, no signs until it just failed, radio quit first, then guages quit, next car starts jerking and as I pull into a parking lot the whole car cuts off and I can’t find anyone to put the new alternator on for me so I’m without a car ive had nothing but problems with this car since I bought it 6 months ago

When you do find someone then make sure the battery is charged up 100% before the car is ever cranked up on the new alt. Using a new alt to charge up the dead battery from the last one is the most common cause of new alternator fails there is, the paperwork will say so. It voids new warranty instantly.

Well it’s already put in, they put a battery charger on it but unsure if it was fully charged up before cranking or not

Glad you got it fixed.
What year/model/engine/trans?
How many miles and how long have you owned it?

Good luck
Paul
