Hey, my alternator is bad and i don't have the $150-200 for a new or remanufac. one, so i am planning on trying my luck at a junkyard pulling one for only $25.

My question is, what year cars would have the same alternator as myne. I have a 1999 Taurus with the OHV 12 valve engine. I am pretty sure its a 130 amp alternator and from my best guess i think the 96-99 Taurus/Sable alternators are all the same as long as its the OHV engine.

I was told by someone at a parts store though that there was a 110 amp version somewhere on these v6s and i want to make sure i get the right amperage and bolt patterns.

Well good news for me, i found out who i bought it from and found the record of my purchase, and its under a lifetime warranty, so i got a shiny re manufactured unit and everything seems to be working now.
