I have a 2012 Honda Pilot Touring. We have replaced the alternator in my truck 3 times since October 2019, once every month. The check charging system light comes on just before I lose power and it dies. The first time there was oil all over the alternator. I replaced the engine valve gasket and there hasn’t been any oil on any of the alternators since. But something is ruining these alternators. I do not have any warning lights on the dashboard other than the check charging system. This last alternator was tested as the others have been and was told the alternator was good. But I was broke down on the side, we swapped the battery, drove it home and the truck ran fine for about an hour and shut down again. Any ideas as to what could be the problem? Anyone else experience this issue?
