my altenator took a $hit. Was making a whirling noise, but it still worked fine cold. Once it warmed up the volts dropped drastically. Which then in turn killed my battery. Now i either have to get this altenator rebuilt.(in which case im going to have it rebuilt for more amps) or buy a new one and hope it can bring my battery back to life.

whatever you do with your alternator, make sure you have a fully charged battery, if not, that alternator isn't going to last very long.

An altenator is made to withhold a charge, not to charge up your dead battery. I agree with 2.2_s10, it wont last long is its gotta push current into that dead battery..
