If your old alternator was the OEM one, then I hope you didn't trade it in. A good rule to follow is to never put a store bought reman on one of these cars. What you get is very substandard parts inside compared to OEM, and a unit that won't last very long. Even a lifetime warranty isn't worth it when you keep changing junk.
You should always take your OEM alternator to a rebuilder who can rebuild with superior parts inside. You might pay a little more for less of a warranty, but you won't need one and you get a professionally rebuilt and assembled unit with better parts. The store bought units are usually slapped together by a $5 per hour or less foreign factory worker who has no clue about workmanship, how to identify problem parts, etc.. If they run out of heatsink compound, they assemble it anyway, and other similar things that we find all the time only in storebought units.
