I drive an '02 Mercury Sable LS with the 24V DOHC engine. I'd been intermittently hearing a new kind of buzzing from my car, especially when I was turning corners and the power steering would have been kicking in. This morning, I went out and tried to start my car. No dice.... some lights, but not many, and no radio. I jumped the car off of my wife's Neon and drove to work. During the drive, my Scangauge indicated 13.6 to 13.8 volts the whole time. I parked the car at work, turned it off, then tried to start it a minute or two later. No dice then, either. I'm thinking alternator here. I checked RockAuto, and I saw $200-300 plus shipping depending on maker for the alternator. Anyone know the book hours for that job on this car?
