Sorry, neither my post or any reply showed up in my newsreader. I double checked
Please repost what you wrote before, or send to the email addy.
The mechanic claims it has nothing to do with the alternator.
Battery shows as fully charged. The rig starts right up.
It is just running rough.
It sounds somewhat smoother until the Check Engine light comes on.
All of this started After I had a new alternator installed. I don't know that
at all related.
Thanks for any suggestions you may have.
