Have been having a gradual problem (over the last year) with the alt not wanting to kick in when temps get colder...sometimes have to run the car a while before starting out to get the volt needle to jump and to see it start charging.

Replaced the battery a week ago (6 yrs old) and snugged the belt up.

Are there any connxs that can be loose & related to this kind of problem?

Brushes...regulator...diode....???

Just get a new one---try going with the maxima one and you should never have this problem again

How do you go about getting the right Maxima alternator for a 300zx. Just ask for the same model year, 85 in my case, except for a Maxima?

I noticed on Advanced Auto Parts site that the Maxima alternators, for 85 models, are more expensive than the 300zx alternators. Also, some of them were 70, 80, or 90 amps. So I guess you have to specify when ordering if you wanted the 90 amp one.

I noticed some of the alternators on the Advanced Auto Parts site say they have an internal regulator. Do they all have an internal regulator?

Thanks.
