Hi Folks.. its been a while..


The last one is a head scratcher though..

The alternator does not engage upon start up, typically takes 5 to 7 min of running until it starts charging..


Back ground.. 1) One of the cheap oil filters I picked up in Nicaragua had a seal failure and oil leaked on to the (back of) alternator 2) The belt was loose .. Retightened yesterday..

I am guessing that the belt is glazed and has to be replaced, probably next Saturday, but just looking for some feed back from any of you most learned gents.. I have not had an alternator issue like this before and grasping at straws..

And a happy new decade to all here as it has been some time since I checked in last..


The Paj putting along at 156,000km. Will be starting year 5 on Feb 2 for her being on the road here in Ontario. Still the daily driver but I have to admit there have been a few respites taken in the Expedition for quirks starting to show.. I am also puzzled on how I can keep the ol' girl now as my daughter just turned 16 and will be looking to drive soon.. She does not like the Paj and I do not want her driving the Expedition so I may turn to one of the LHD conversions offed by some importers... Any one brought one over yet??

well I havent had the same problem but as a alternate to getting a new alternator if the new belt doesnt work then i would get a can of electrical contact cleaner and soak the alternator in it. that might clean out any oil that is in the alternator itself. The brushes may have been gunked up. let us know how it all works out.

Would have to be rebuilt (again) as Diesel Ranger/Pajero alternators also house the vacuum pump for the brakes and are as rare as hens teeth on the used market..
