Battery tested fine. I just put it back in the car - cranked and ran fine by voltage stayed under 12V. Alternator isn’t work. Ugh!

I’ll order a new one and replace - just hope I don’t install, works for a few days and happens again. I know the odds are low, but hope that something else isn’t going on with the electrical...

Awe man, sorry to hear of you troubles. I would be totally pissed if that had happened to me. Hope it is just a bad alternator so at least you know it's not something else. Also good advice about changing the valve cover gaskets as those tend to start leaking far to frequently. Keep us posted on how it goes.

Turns out that the plastic alternator brush holder was melted. We replaced it and now it’s outputting 14.6V again, but not sure why it melted and if it will happen again.
