    I've got a 1995 F150 with a 5.0 and auto. The other day I noticed the alternator light flashing when I was driving. What is this telling me?

    Alternators bad. Usually means its barely charging enough to keep the truck running. I would go have it tested ASAP before it leaves you stranded and it won't have enough charge to start.

    Go to your nearest pep boys or O'Reiliys and get it tested! They're pretty easy to swap out too.
