2002 Kia Rio 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 91,000 miles
New question to " the alternator is not installed correctly. Im assuming when the engine was replaced the mechanic who installed it left out a spacer for the alternator and when the alternator is now being installed when the bolts are tightened the alternator case is being distorted causing it to fail. I have seen this before.&Quot;
If the spacer is installed, will I need a new alternator
or is it ruined by the incorrect installation?
