the battery symbol came on, i drove for an hour then even though i gave it gas the engine
revved up high but the car kept getting slower. but when i went around around a turn and

hard is it to replace. thanks

just replaced the battery in February, the alternator can be replaced easy, do you need to jack up the car?

Should be able to do it from top side without jacking car up.
