it seems like in the past month i have had nothing but problems with my truck (95 Splash with 3.0L v6for reference). a few weeks ago my engine temperature gauge started fluctuating so i put a new thermostat in it. a few days go by and it started doing it again. so shit, i replaced the engine temperature sensor and that worked. around $15 total for both of that to fix that problem.
earlier this week, i been having problems starting my truck. it would barely start up and would idle at like 500 rpms but would idle normal after a few minutes of driving. i got my friend to check my battery with a volt meter and he said the battery was fine. so today i went to Advance Auto and had them check it and my alternator. the battery tested fine. he checked my alternator and said i may need a new one soon cause its dying. i would have had them run a diagnostic on it but i was running late for work. so tonite after bowling, i went to start my truck and it wouldnt turn over but it started fine about 2 hours ago with no problems other than the idle was a little higher than normal. so luckily my friend was there with his car and he gave me a jump and it started up. what the hell is going on with my truck? im starting to get pissed at the damn thing. oh and for further reference, it wont start good when its really cold out. i really dont have the money for a new (well re-manufactured) alternator and im getting frustrated period with the truck. this sucks. someone come buy this piece of shit from me or some shit...lol.
anyone got any ideas whats going on with my truck??
