I've been having problems with my SVT almost a year and half now with its Alternator. It trips the alternator light on the dash, but when I check it I'm putting out 13.75 Volts + and I have yet to kill the battery on the car. The other issue is with my downstream O2 Sensor. I replaced it after getting a P133 code with my scan tool, but I'm still getting errors and a MIL light with the new sensor. Sometimes the MIL light goes out, but often it comes back on after a couple days.

I'm totally fed up with the car and hopefully I can replace it next Spring, but I'm looking at a worse case scenario here and I should also try and get it fixed before I sell it.

Any suggestions???

If you are hell bent on selling it, i wouldn't even mess with it. If the problems are that intermitent, i say let it ride. Worse case, get a mil eliminator for the secondary o2 sensor. Also check the pigtail going to the alt. I belive they have had issues of the connector going bad. Best of luck.
