  • Reman Alternator
  • Product Attributes:
    • Family: Ford Oe
    • Fan Type: External
    • Plug Type: 333
    • Regulator Type: Internal
    • Rotation Direction: Clockwise

  • DENSO alternators are not only original equipment on many of the world's top production cars; they are a favorite in motorsports as well, where their light weight, high efficiency, and durability under the most demanding conditions make them the natural choice. Remanufactured DENSO alternators go through a grueling process. Stators and rectifiers are tested to 300 volts, while rotors are submitted to 600 volts, all to ensure reliable performance. Rotor slip rings are buffed to an 8 micron surface finish, with runout limited to 20 microns, minimizing brush wear and abrasion. Bearings are validated to OE standards and loaded with premium OE standard lubricants. New or remanufactured, a DENSO alternator is a quality component. Offered in versions from 40 to 160 amperes and beyond for hundreds of specific vehicle applications, all alternators meet DENSO's rigorous First Time Fit standards. Contemporary cars employ dozens of sophisticated electronic systems from bumper to bumper, placing heavy demands on the charging system. The alternator is no place to cut corners. DENSO First Time Fit alternators meet or exceed all manufacturer standards, mount properly with a minimum of installation issues, and provide years of reliable service. Features. Premium cores and precise OE assembly benchmarks; Design to meet the grueling heat and electrical requirements; First Time Fit provides perfect mounting with no belt/pulley alignment issues; Benefits. Service professionals preferred DENSO's alternators for a trouble free solution; OE quality fit, appearance, and durability; Full compatibility with sensitive electronics systems; Compact and lightweight design

Question From Guest on 2001 ford escort

Does anyone know what might cause the battery light to stay on while driving a car? Thanks for your help

Response From way2old Top Rated Answer

Have the charging system checked. Possibly the alternator is not charging. Check all fuses with a test light first.

Question From mustang8726 on 1999 Ford Escort wagon starting up and firing then after 5 min of idle it dies

i have a 1999 ford escort wagon that will start and then it dies after letting it warm up at an idle for 5-10min. I have replaced both the alternator and battery. When running the the voltage is reading a little under 10 volts, seems like the alternator may be faulty. The check engine light has been on for a few years constantly, now the battery light is intermittent, the check engine is due to a knocking from the engine. When i first changed the alternator and battery voltage read fine on both the alternator and battery tests between 13-14 volts. What baffles me is it starts up just fine after it sits for an 24 hrs and then it will die. i have not done a fuel pressure test. when it starts to die, the engine pulses from a high idle to a lower idle then it kills itself, which leads me to a fuel issue. What are suggestions i should do? grounds, wires and connections all appear ok.

Response From Hammer Time

The check engine light has been on for a few years constantly,

And you're surprised you have issues?

You need to have the codes read first and then resolve the charging issues that may or may not be a faulty alternator.

Response From mustang8726

ok codes dont help me, just says running rich, aka the knock, not a problem for me. the issue is the electrical bug.

Tell that to your catalyst. They don't like running rich. Have you verified the voltage at the battery with a multimeter or are you going by the gauge in the dash? Do realize the dash gauges aren't always accurate, especially after 15 years of use like your car.

Do you have a multimeter? You're going to need one to troubleshoot this.

Codes ARE a problem, and if you want this to run right they need to be repaired. If you keep your car in constant disrepair don't expect it to last long or ever be reliable. Get it scanned and post the exact code numbers.

Response From mustang8726 Top Rated Answer

yes 8if used a multi-meter on both battery and alternator, battery read 12.6 volts before startup, turned key on voltage still read over 12, turned all lights/electronics on still read above 12 volts constant no drain. started car, voltage reading 9 volts under 10 volts on Alternator test grounded to battery post with meter. voltage regulator bad should read upwords of 13 volts running.

Response From mustang8726

however, what else could cause the voltage to drop like that other than alternator regulator being bad? this is my problem and why the car dies. all wires, coonectors, and grounds are intact and good.

Response From mustang8726

also other than main power fuse under the hood on motherboard computer.

Response From Hammer Time

OK, it's apparent that you have your own ideas of what the correct way to approach the problem is and you are not listening to anything said here so I am going to close this now.

Response From Hammer Time

How do you know? You haven't checked it in ages.

Response From mustang8726

how do i diagnose the charging issues? when new alternator was put in voltage read fine on both battery and and alternator tests as did the car. the knock isnt the problem

please be more specific with your responses on charging issues and troubleshooting

Ford Escort Steering Wheel Problem

Question From Guest on Ford Escort Steering Wheel Problem

Hello,
I have known my CV joint has been going bad for a while (clicking and people telling me) and just have not had the money for a while to get it fixed. Yesterday on my way to Walmart, I noticed that the car seemed to jitter a bit (different than the normal fuel problem jittering). We parked, bought our lunch and went on the work. A short while (maybe .5 mi) out of the parking lot, the car suddenly swerved to the right and I had to turn the wheel about 30° to the left to compensate. About 30 seconds later the car served to the left and I returned the steering wheel to it's normal position. Since then the only other time I drove it (back from work) it has done this alternating between normal and left position every 30 seconds or so.

I've heard people saying that it could be an axle, the CV joint, the steering column.

I make $6.70 and the car is a $500 car and my only mode of transportation, so I can't exactly take it to a mechanic. Any advice?

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

Odd symptom. As dmac stated, could be a CV binding. You may want to check the rack and pinion mounts. The rack could be moving, side to side, but generally, you'll get a clunking noise associated with the movement. Whatever the cause, it doesn't sound safe to drive.

Response From dmac0923 Top Rated Answer

this is a little tough, i would say it could be the CV joint binding up causing the extreme pull to one side......but its very odd that it alternates like that.
