Car tried cranking verrry slowly this morning about 1-2 times,then nothing.
now I hear clicking when I'm trying to start it.

I hope it's not the alternator :mad:

I've noticed my car cranking up slower past few weeks so its the batt right?

Yes - Optima's cost more, but mine lasted over 6 years problem free... They are nice and don't have temperature fluxation failures like a conventional battery does. I did replace it with a Saab battery however (to make the engine bay look more correct). I might be swapping it into my 86 however if it fits from my 95' 9000 (even though it's a 9-5 battery anyways)

Got it fixed, bought a energizer double a battery. Nah just a energizer. Its a tiny bit bigger then the big aftermarket one I had in there so only the screw fits in but it works great

Thanks everybody for your help.
