I have a relatively new battery for my 1987 Taurus 3.0 and am having trouble starting the vehicle lately. I suspect that the alternator is not charging the battery. How can I check the alternator to see if it is good? What else could it be?

Re: Alternator

Have your battery load tested and check the alternator output for voltage and amperage.
