Tried fixing my brother's piece of shit '88 Audi yesterday by replacing the battery and adjusting the alternator properly. I just got a call saying that it died on the freeway onramp and that the starter just clicks. Sounds to me like the battery got drained. Perhaps the alternator wasn't charging or anything. The Ranger he had was perfectly fine, and it's still running. His roommate has it now, so I don't see why he got rid of it. This is what happens when you just go for cheap and keep your automotively-inclined family out of the loop on your car buying purchases.
