my voltmeter was dipping almost into the 8 volt range, i took my car to pep boys they said my diodes were bad on the alt.....brought a brand new one,replaced it,the volts show whith a voltmeter tester 14 coming off the battery while car is running,but occasionally i see the voltmeter in the car dip sort of low like to the left of center on the gauge....is this normal or do i have something else i need to replace?
thanks,
ric:D

This dip wouldn't coincide with the rad. fan turning on, would it? If so, then that's normal. I've seen it on mine before.

A small dip is fine. Wanna see it take a dive...idle the engine and switch on the rear window heat and a/c blower, all exterior lighting, and roll both your windows down at the same time. :)

OK, I have been seeing this on mine for years, and it never bothered me. That vid just makes me want to get a full set of aftermarket guages installed.
