What would a 1988 Pontiac Sunbird need to have three alternators installed in six years?

I had a 1988 Pontiac Sunbird GT with the 2.0L Turbocharged engine. I replaced the alternator every 26K mi. I believe this was due to the underhood temperatures caused by the turbo. I had the car for 123K mi. before I sold it. Still in great shape. Could be due to a short in the electrical system or a bad ground.

What is the cost to have timing belt replaced 0n a 1994 Pontiac sunbird?

I don't know the cost as that depends on where you live, but may I give you some advice. As the water pump is driven by the timing belt, if this car has over 100,000 miles on it, replace the timing belt at the same time as the belt. This will save you money down the road when the pump fails. The belt should be replaced every 60,000 miles.

When filling up your gas tank why would it register as full right away when it is only half full?

Fuel tank gauges are rarely accurate. It is best to use your trip odometer and monitor your mileage to determine actual gas quantity. Ron: Many cars/trucks use thermal gauges for indicating gas, temperature and oil levels...which the current thru the gauge varies (changed by the sensor) it warms up a heater element (wrapped around a "bimetal" strip). The bimetal strip bends as it heats up and moves the "needle" in the gauge. The more the current, the hotter the element, the higher the gauge goes. Unfortuantly, this process is a slow one, so, to bring the guages up to temperature quickly, the dashboard power has a "voltage regulator" which applys a maximum current (for a few seconds) to the dashboard gauges when you first start a vehicle. After that, it pulses the gauges every second or so. The regulator usually has some "adjustment" to the timing pulse so you can adjust for the "high point" of all of gauges. So, if you fill up your car while it is running, the gauge wont change as fast as you fill it up and it may show less than full (more so in colder weather)...or you could have a bad gauge, sender, wire, ground or voltage regulator.
