Hello Everyone, I own a 1997 Mazda 626 4Cylinder, and although I have tried my best to keep up with it, lacking proper funds to make repairs over the few years as i should have, I've recently run into a debilitating issue. While driving a couple weeks ago, I lost charge voltage, as well as loss of acceleration and power steering.

I have not had a problem with it since then but am worried it could leave me stranded somewhere. I had the alternator replaced but the 'bench' test on my old one at O'Reilys said my old alternator was fine.
