Charging system Blues... 

After we made it back home from our much needed vacation in Payson, I got out of the car and could hear the battery boiling from the side of the car. Not good...

So, I gave it a day to cool off, and began finding (or trying to find) what the issue was...

I replaced the voltage regulator, after the battery... Sluggish start.

Next, had the alternator tested. Completely shot. Replaced that.

Still, sluggish start.

So, replaced the starter solenoid, and all the wiring from the battery to the solenoid to the voltage regulator to the alternator and the starter...

Then, my worst fear was confirmed when I turned they key only to hear a slow chug, then clicks. Bad starter.

Looks like the Land Shark is going to be sitting in the driveway til I get paid on Friday and can pick up a new starter... which is kind of a bummer, considering its my only vehicle.

Oh well, where there's a will, theres a way!

Tune in on Friday!
