I am in desperate need of a new car battery! my car has been acting up since the Summer but since it would only act up once or twice a week I didn't look more into it until November..I had taken my car to Walmart to get a oil change when the mechanic tried to pull my car into the garage and it wouldn't start. he had to jump start it to get it inside and told me that it might be my starter going out and suggested a good mechanic right up the street. the new mechanic hooked my car up to a diagnostic machine and it showed a battery lift of 74%, alternator is good so it had to be the starter. he gave me an estimate for a new starter which cost $289. I brought it in 3 days later to get it fixed and for awhile I thought it was..now it's happening again except it's becoming more frequent. I have to leave my car running when I go to the store or take someone with me to stay in the car so it will continue running..a new battery for my car is around $89-$119. I work a full-time job at a residential home but lately I've been getting 25 hours every 2 weeks. I don't get paid till next Friday and I could use the battery NOW!!

If you hooked it up to a diagnostic machine it would have told you your battery was weak.You are either being scammed, or your pretty dumb,or your trying to scam the good people of Topix.

You will probably have to get someone to drive you the 550 miles and put it in for her. Her daddy taught her well.
