    Default CDTi Alternator - Kaputt

    Over the last week, my 1.9 cdti 16v veccy, has felt sluggish below 2000 rpm. Today on the normal shopping run it felt worse still........on the return trip the red warning light came on on the dash board ! ? hmmmm.

    I turned it off, checked the belt was still on, which it was, and then continued home. i checked the voltage on the battery, with no engine running to find it had just 11.5 volts......started it up and it stayed put....checked connections to battery /alternator and sort of then guessed it was the alternator that had gone (car's done 77 thou)....
    having remembered i have AA breakdown warranty (underwritten by nationwide) i rang up and low and behold they got me to drop the car in straight away...... 1 hour later they confirmed the diagnosis of broken alternator, and ordered a replacement ! sound Can't believe it was straight forward....expecting the car back in a moment, I am hoping that the flat spot below 2000 rpm will be erradicated due to low volts ?

    i will let you all know.....

    sorted.....

    had car back and tested voltage output to compare its reading 13.5v now.....whilst running
    and the flat spot has gone. so I guess a low voltage can be responsible....
    makes you wonder if this is the culprit of the dreaded sub 2000rpm with alot of other cdti drivers ? perhaps dodgy alternators / battery power ?
