Chirping alternator

35

Asked by Sep 12, 2016 at 08:15 PM about the 1998 Ford E-250 3 Dr STD Econoline Cargo Van Extended

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replaced coil packs on my 98 Ford
Econoline 250 cargo van and noticed about
half of the wires to my alternator are broke
off.  Obviously I am going to cut off the bad
wire and strip new wire and re bolt it on.  My
question is should I get it checked for a bad
bearing because it has been chirping for
about a week and want to prevent a more
costly repair because I'm broke and do all
my own work and would be screwed if it has
to be put in a shop.  All input is appreciated
Thanks!

If you don't want to spend money on a new one, remove it and take it to auto parts store to have tested and see if it makes that noise on their test machine, it's free. If it does,replace it bofere you get stranded
