if it's not the battery it's most likely the alternator...sounds like your not getting a consistent current flowing from your battery so your spark plugs won't ignite (car won't start)

not sure, shoudlnt be extravagent by any means (alternator is not a high-tech part)

get a few opinions/quotes. when this is done, be sure to post back and tell us what the pricing is for your area. we'll be able to give better advice to other ecelica users in the future thumbsup
