Alternator SOKING Hot! Why?
Hi ya'll. I just replaced a bad alternator on my Ford Taurus 3.0 L,,,the replacement one was used, but it immediately started re-charging the drained battery, and the car would re-start and keep running etc, but I had toi shut it off after 5-10 mins, as I would have melted the alternatore!! It was SO hot, you could not even touch it! Why would this be?
All the connections on the replacement one, were the same as the old one.
Thank you for any replies.
