Okay, wasn't the battery.

Two questions:

They said it might be my alternator, and that they could test it. Is that worth a shot?

Also what is the type of of bolt that secures the battery clamp? It fell in the dark, and I can't find it.

By all means, have them check the alternator.

Not sure on the bolt. Is it one that holds a small plastic wedge down at the bottom of the battery, or one that comes up and over the battery?

The first one, the one that holds the plastic wedge down?
That makes it the GM long body bolt right? 13mmx65mm M8?
