Where is the voltage regulator on a 1990 Dodge Dakota?

On fuel injected models, the voltage regulator is not in the alternator, it is, unfortunately, part of the computer. The field winding in the alternator receives it excitation voltage from the computer. The computer monitors the system voltage and provides what it thinks is the appropriate field drive to keep the battery charged. The bad part about this is that you have to replace the whole engine computer if the regulator portion of it fails (at least $200.00 or more) I know this from personal experience. It might be possible to install an external regulator or install an alternator with built in regulator but you will have to modify the wiring. On carbureted models the voltage regulator should be mounted on the firewall near the ignition coil. It should look like a small metal box about the size of a pack of cigarettes and be held on by two small bolts and have a small wiring harness (two or maybe three wires).

How do you make a 1990 Chevy 1500 with tbi 350 and 700R run faster and not spend a whole lot of money?

Answer . \nThe best way is to buy a performance chip for your trucks computer, the other way is to regear it, if it is a 4x4 you will have to regear both the front carrier, and rear differential with the same size gear set, other wise it will ruin your carrier/diff.

If your brakes are ineffective, you have a problem, part of that problem is that your truck is 23 years old. Why don't you change the fluid, replace the front pads and rear shoes.
