So I was out playing a little bit. I rolled into it in first then nailed it. It spun a little bit and it stayed at about 6700-6800 for a little bit and I had to let out around 80 mph because it started to walk sideways. Well when I let off, the battery light started a intermittent flashing. Then the check alternator warning cane on. Stayed on for a minute or so and went off. Then came back. I continued my drive home noting that nothing was going dim. When I pulled up in the driveway and let it idle for a minute, it stopped flashing and appeared to go back to normal. Fluke? Alternator going out?
Tid bits of info.
-Oreilly alternator. Maybe 1-1.5 years old.
-Itís been whining at idle for a while now.
-New premium heavy duty battery.
-Under drive pulley so the rpm was less than it would have been with a stock pulley.
-battery cables tight. Not corroded.
-4 ga ground strap added to engine block to battery
-starter rebuilt a couple hundred miles ago
-no lights flicker, no dimming. Seems to be charging because I can hear the alternator
Should I just swap alternators? Got a lifetime warranty
Hereís the shenanigans I was attempting
