Financial situation is making it a necessity to fix things myself. I know how to check the oil and transmission fluid, but that's about the extent of it. And I taught my hubby how, so that's not really an option. The car was my grandfather's and it sat for 3-4 yrs before he died. We've put in a new battery and fuel pump in the last 3 months. The last week or so, when we would go to start the car, it took 2-3 tries before it would finally turn over. Now it's not turning over at all. It clicks, and we had Autozone check out the battery and they said it was fine. So what do I need to do next?

Pretty sure I've narrowed it down to the alternator. The battery will hold a charge, and the car has power as the windshield wipers work just fine with the ignition in the on position.
YES THE BATT. AND ALT. ARE PROB OK. BUT THE "STARTER" IS WHAT TURNS THE ENGINE OVER. IF THE STARTER IS BAD 10 BATTERIES AND
ALTERNATORS WILL NOT START THE CAR!!
