Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Will the alternator interchange with a
2002 Ford Explorer and a 2005
Mercury mariner

My actual question is do the alternators of the 2 vehicles above interchange?

If they're the same amperage and mount the same, not a problem. It's ok to use an alternator with higher amps but lower amps will result in a dead battery. So bigger is better.
