I smelled a sulfar smell and pulled over to a garage...my
battery was smoking and was ruin. plus the alternator
was bad. My question......did a bad battery ruin the alternator, or did a
bad alternator ruin the battery??
Curious to know what caused what. It is a 1992 Caravan. I noticed the past
two months when starting the car it would take slightly longer to start
up..sign of a dying battery or a dying alternator? Also, I had some , but
not much, whinning sound up front. I had alternator go before in other
vehicles, but usually it sounds like a chattering squirrel .Anyways any
insight appreciated with this aging van. Time to get a new one this summer.
Things start to go just as one plans to buy another vehicle.
