Car question? [View all]

Didn't know where else to post this, so . . .


Anyway, 2002 Dodge Caravan. Went to start it, rattled like a machine gun, dashboard dials spinning. Check engine light has been on for over three years.

Alternator, maybe? I really can't afford to get ripped off, so any help is very welcome!

Bought in 2009, it had 130K on odometer, I've added less than 20K.

TIA

UPDATE -- Friend brought his jumper cables and got the car running. We drove it to Auto Zone where they checked everything under the hood; alternator and starter are fine, but the battery needed replacing. I sat in the car while my friend and the Auto Zone guy talked hot rods as he replaced the battery. Also got new wipers, so now I can actually see where I'm driving.
Thanks for all the input, everyone!
