Only thought i have on this is if you have head lights on when running at night or not,sounds like the alternator may be dragging it down,but hard to say without knowing if you are running lights when it does this?


load test the charging system ..and why not change the fuel filter....really

I put a new headlight switch in yesterday and she purrs like a kitten day and night.Thanks
