fitzpatrickgf: I didn't know where to direct the question regarding a possible
electical problem at initial start up of my 1999 Suburban. Recently during
a cold start, I turn my key ignition to the on position before starting. I
usually wait a few seconds before starting up the engine. Immediately after
starting, I smell a burning electrical smell through my interior blower
vents for about 5 seconds and then it stops. The smell reminds me of a hot
wire burning or hot electrical motor. The interior blower fan seems to be
working fine. Would you have any clues on where to check in the interior or
the engine compartment? Is this a common problem on older GM Trucks? I
drove it for a while this last weekend and when the car is operating for
some time, it doesn't smell when I shut the car off for 10 minutes and
restart it again. Only when it's the first cold start after sitting for
more then 5 hours..
6superb9: THANK YOU>>>>once again you come through for me. ...helped my neighbor do
this; and he bought me a nice set of jumper cables for the help!
1A Auto Parts: There may be a loose wire or loose ground somewhere. Also check the switch
and the fuses to see if they are okay.
1A Auto Parts: @18WheelTerrorist I'm not 100% sure. I'm not aware of or have seen anyone
make this kind of a swap. You may want to check out an automotive forum for
your vehicle to see if there's someone out there that has done this. They
may be able to tell you exactly what you would need.
Occupy123: Informative - Thanks for sharing
Nick Chatzikirou: i'm mechanically inclined enough to get me around in little situations. i

MrKameron1220: THANK A LOT I DIDNT HAVE A CLUE HOW TO DO THIS...BIG HELP MAN..
1A Auto Parts: @sansonj72 Sometimes you have to wiggle the alternator around a bit as you
turn the bolt.
1A Auto Parts: @starbuary10 I will be doing this in the future. I have an 86 GMC Jimmy of
my own that I am going to upgrade the heads, cam, intake and carb on but
that won't be until later in 2010.
1A Auto Parts: Thanks, we're trying!
ivan miramontes: awesome video, saved me some dough!
1A Auto Parts: If there's a check engine light on in the dash you may want to pull the
code to see what could be causing the issue.
1A Auto Parts: A no start is something that will be difficult to diagnose but I recommend
bringing the truck to someone before you start throwing parts at a problem.
1A Auto Parts: If it hasn't been tuned up in a while, you may want to start with a simple
ArfOtis: Thanks for the ratchet on tensioner tip! After failing with several other
items I turned to YouTUbe and you.
1A Auto Parts: You may want to see if there is a stored code in the computer that may tell
you what the issue is.
George Crenshaw: Simple question, My truck battery icon all of a sudden came on. AZ and Orel
test ed and said alternator good, battery good. Reinstall same thing
happens any suggestions.
jeevespreston: Excellent video, thanks!!! You saved me a ton of time, I probably would've
broken that stud had I not heard the need for 2 wrenches... Thanks!
Courtney Love: I have a 2003 Chevy Surburban. When I put it in drive, it tends to want to
cut off. Could it be the alternator or something else? I put a new battery
YELLOWFIN M: I have 1997 chevy suburban wont work on all light and start too!! I put new

1A Auto Parts: It should be a 3/8 drive ratchet. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto.com
Investigatormc: Fantastic video. I canceled my appt at the mechanic after watching this and
decided to try it on my own. The worst issue I had was getting the bolt
holes lined up. 30 minutes later and I was done. Great service to the
common man you provide.
Bill Dingus: Great video, walked me through the whole job. Had you right there in the
garage. Many thanks.
James Sanson: How do You align the bolts to the alternator - I have been trying and
1A Auto Parts: You may want to refer to your owners manual to see what they recommend.
12gogogirl: Big help thanks Man!
mlc211: Awesome video. Just changed out the alternator on my 2003 Silverado.
Instructions were perfect. Thanks!
18WheelTerrorist: wonderin if a duramax diesel motor would fit in a 98 K2500 chasis??? Has a
5.7 350 in it now... If it works, how easy or hard to do?
tcbfla: Thanks so much! Just finished changing out my alternator. Only took about
half hour thanks to your video.
starbuary10: can you please do a video for the removal and replacement of intake
manifold and carburetor for an old chevy. I have a 83 K20 and need to do
this, but cannot find any videos or decent how-to's. I like your tutorials
best, they are very detailed.
indeedido: Great video!! Very helpful.
JoelTheSpanishGuy: What a great video! This will save me some dough.
hock2112: What a great video!! Thanks a million!! Step by Step exactly as I needed to
do on my Chevy Silverado 1500 with the Vortec V-8 motor. Now if you would
do a Replacing Power Steering Pump on the same motor I would be set. Many
videos and instructions but not for my style assembly and no where as clear
of instructions as you do. Again Thanks for the long distance help!!
Daniel Hofford: I had an alternator put in my 98 K3500 in Nov and it's been acting
flaky...I paid over $260 for the whole deal. With your video I was able to
put a new alternator in for just the price of the alternator, $130 and a
little bit of time. Thanks. PS, In the list of tools put 2 12 mm wrenches.
