2002 Mitsubishi montero sport, this will be the 5th alternator I have had to replace since Febuary of this year(2014) what would make my alt keep going bad? Purchased @ autozone.
Have you had the battery checked? Sulfated cells can cause this. Do you have any auxiliary equipment installed, ie amplifiers, CB's, high output stereo?
I have an 02 Montero Sport ES 3.0L 2WD, I dont know if it would be the same problem but I recently had this done. I have 118K miles on it: the cam shaft and o-rings were leaking and causing the oil to drip into the alternator and short them out. I have purchased 4 alternators over the course of the 5 years that I have owned this vehicle and went through 3 mechanics to finally figure out the problems. It cost about 1700$ to fix.
