2.0 Alternator in a 2.3 engine 2004 Ford Focus

Asked by Jul 03, 2017 at 12:55 AM about the 2004 Ford Focus ZTS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car had a burnt rubber smell. Then 2 days later
really bad and we thought it was the belt. Wel went
to drive it 5 blocks home and it started smoking!!
Coming in the car out from under the hood!! I
thought it was gonna catch fire!! Then it wouldn't
even turn over. Ok the alternator went out. So my
boyfriend replaced it it's a 2.3 But he bought a part
for a 2.0. Does that matter? I ask because now it
seems to run roughly and my dash lights r dim like
it's not getting enough power. I can feel a big
difference in it when I drive. It starts fine and all
just wondering if that could be the problem...
