    my alternator drained my aged battery a lot so he says replace it. The starter is burned but he's checking on a used one.

    I'm copying all info & looking at ways I could do the parts cheaper but I won't get cheaper labor than $50. I was quoted crazy numbers like nearly $900 for everything from other places.

    THX for suggestions!

      money.  Have your friend check junkyards.  Not for battery, of course, but starters on a car that was in a crash work just fine.

      Funny aside:  the main computer went out on our 1995 Explorer.  Ford wanted some outrageous amount of money....I think it was $2800.  We went on ebay and found one for $40.  Hubby figured it would work, or not.  And if not, we were only out $40.  It worked!  That was 8 years ago :-)

      David Koch is fucking Longshanks, and Occupy is the real Braveheart.
