    The girl at Chili's came to me and said my car was on fire and smoking real bad! My heart dropped to floor and ran out to see it was infact the alt. all burned up. lol
    Had my car since March of 2003 and only had to replace it once.

    Original alternator here, the car is just over 7 years old, just shy of 51K miles, stock except for the magnaflow exhaust.

    I should knock on wood and get the chicken foot out, I guess :shrug:
