Lately it takes too long to turn my car on. And since the alternator is in a horrible position, I can't really test it so this is where you guys come in:

The starter clicks and goes and goes until the engine finally turns over. Who's fault is this?

You can test the alternator by putting the amp probe over posotive battery cable. If there are 2 which I don't remember just try to make it the one that goes from the alternator to the battery. Have a shop run a full test. Battery, Starter, and Alternator. Takes about 20 min.

Places like Autozone or Pepboys will usually run those tests for you free of charge.
