hey guys,

my volt meter showed a dropped from 13volts to 8volts a few days ago.
i had my alternator tested at a parts store, it passed.
i bought a new regulator and i still had 8 volts.
so i bought a new alternator.

i had 13 volts yesturday now i only get 10 volts and thats at high way speed.

i made a sharp left turn and got 13 volts. strange....

i checked my wiring i noticed my ground wire to the block and my stator wire on the alternator were loose. i made sure they were tight and secure.

i still get 10 volts at highway speed and maybe 11 volts after i put on the turn signals.

What could it be?!

I agree it is most likely your grounds. However Just because you bought a new voltage regulator does not mean it is a GOOD Voltage Regulator.

I had a similar issue a few years back with one of my Mavericks and replaced the Volatage Reg. 2 times before I got a good one.
