yes it is putting out 14volts



Have you had your check engine light read?

yes all the codes were misfire codes and thats why the censors were changes but now there are no codes comming up but still running bad tries to unhood battery to reset the cpu but that did not work either

I just changed my alternator and I am having missfires now the day after. And it is very rough at idle. Any help?
