my car wont start and im not sure why i think its my alternator. when i try to start the car the first time it will turn over and run for like 2-3 secs and then turn off and when i try again it jus makes a ticking noise like my battery is but but at the same time i'll be getting a jump and that goes to show its not my battery.

    You can find the price to replace the alternator here: http://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=5547
    The alternator is under the power steering pump. I would have the battery and charging system checked prior to replacing the alternator, just to be sure you're not replacing an expensive part that doesn't need replacing.
