I don't think of anything in comon between the two. If you have a check engine light, take it to autozone and have the codes read. I would change the fuel filter to see if maybe that happened at the same toime. Possibly have the wrong alternator pulley or belt is installed wrong. Can cause a short between the alternator and the frame.

Will changing the original color of 65 a riviera cause it to loss value?

Yes, it sure will. Normally anything you do that is not original drops the value of the vehicle. That is unless the car was painted some really ugly color at the factory. In that case it just might add to the value.

How do you replace the alternator on a Buick Riviera?

In order to remove the alternator you must first remove the belt. The alternator is held in place by two bolts and one will require a 13 mm socket to remove it and the other one requires a 13 mm wrench to remove the nuts while holding the long bolt with either another 13 mm wrench or socket. The alternator takes some force to remove it and pry bar might help. PRECAUTION: When using a pry bar do not use a pulley as a pivot for the pry bar, you will ruin that pulley!!!
