Engine HELP !
Please could some one help. My car cut out as if the battery had run flat all electric went an it would not jump, for along time, the AA man said it was my alternator. Once we got it started an he tested the battery with his gadget. So towed me an my car home. If This connection was lose would it make it seem like the alternator was dicky as he said it was dropping slowly from 14. I just tried a few things an the car would still not start, then realised this connection was not tight thightened it an it started let the battery charge a bit turned off the engine an tried again an it started again. please could you engine savvy guys tell me if you thing i fixed before I let my wife go out in it an she gets stuck an I am in the dog house. the wire was loose on the top of the battery an went from the Red part on the battery to what i think is the starter motor a sort of big round silver thing on the botto right hand side of my engine Thanks
