I've got a 2002 S-10 LS, Reg. cab, 4.3L V-6, 47K miles. Only options are CC, cd player, & a/c. A little history:
3 Years ago the Delco (pos) battery cracked and leaked out all over the wheel well. Replaced it w/ NAPA '65' batt., and replaced the serpentine belt while I was in there. Fast forward to the Sunday night. Take the truck out, drive all over Columbia, get home, no problems.
Monday night, truck wouldn't start, NADA! Today I jump it with my co. van and check the voltmeter after taking the cables off. When idle, it runs at 14+V. but when I put a load on it, it starts to dip below 14?
And when I shut it off, then restart it, it'll run below 14, until I step on the gas?
So, is it the alt., battery, computer????
Any help is appreciated.
