I have a 91 loyale with a failing volatage reagulator. Should I try and replace the voltage regulator inside the alternator or just get a new alternator.

I would have it rebuilt by a REPUTABLE shop.

Hust get a replacement alt. I think the last one I replaced I got a remanufacyred from Advanced Auto parts, and it ran only about 50 or 60 bucks, and has a lifetime warrenty. Which is good, I seem to go through an alt every six months to a year.

Depends on your soldering skills. Shucks lists the regulator for about $35, so I'm sure if I go to my favorite automotive electrical parts/rebuilder I could probably get it for about $20. But, you need to be pretty good at soldering.
