Why is every e-mail from me asking for help? Sheesh....
My car is having trouble starting. This time, it's the battery. It's
been a long time since the last time I started it, and I didn't drive
it much since it died last. I got it started using a battery pack,
then I drove it around town for about 10-15 minutes, getting up above
3000 a couple times. When I got home, no start again. The battery
seemed to have more juice (than before) but still couldn't crank the
I'm wagering that something has to be replaced, but should I do the
alternator or the battery? If I go with the alternator, should I get
the W model or not? Advance and Autozone have alternators with a W
terminal and one without. Which does mine have (83 stock engine)?
Does it matter? thepartsbin.com has a 90 amp model for $150...but
makes no mention of the W terminal.....
Maybe 5 hours on the road tomorrow will charge it? Ack. I'm bringing
the battery charger.
