it gets better!! after I put the new ps pump in I forget to torque the AN fitting down tight on the pump. drove it around for about 10 mins then looked under the hood, saw that the resivoir was almost empty and could see it leaking all over the alt... I tried to dry up what I could see with paper towel but I thought it was toasted. 3 months later it's still going strong lol

For the OP, read this thread. #1 killer of alternators is the power steering pump. Must leaks come from over tightening of the hoses and crushing the .70 cent O ring.
