Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2002 Infiniti I35, 190,000 miles.- Has been running great until late yesterday when I pulled into my driveway and the car wouldn't accelerate.- When the car is in P or N the engine will rev as expected.- When it is one of the Drive or Reverse gears, it moves at idle pace only. When I press the accelerator, the engine won't even rev.

It was the alternator. I bought a new one for $99 on rockauto.com and paid someone $150 to install it.
