    This is my son's car, and I'm diagnosing remotely. He's stranded on the side of the road, but I'm 400 miles away. This happened suddenly when he turned on his brights, but that could be coincidental. His batter light came on, and when he takes the car out of gear, ...

      Depends on your budget and how the rest of your car looks. your at that point where you gotta expect to fix more then the normal ware and tare items.

      i would fix it, if the engine runs smooth, trans shifts fine, rubber mounts and bushings are decent, small or no leaks, small amount of body rust, a tight suspension and it was a well maintained car.
