I don't have details just got it last week. So not familiar with a regina battery depot battery. It's rather a small battery and doesn't fit on the battery tray. Should I try changing it to a heavier battery

I don't know what you mean by a sealed battery. It has two covers on the top that if you take them off they show the 6 cells. It is small as it doesn't fit on the tray for the battery and the clamp doesn't fit either because it is too big. No I haven't had the alternator checked I can take it in tomorrow and have it checked. Do you think I should do that or try a bigger battery tonight that a friend is going to put in for me?

I think you should put the correct size battery and have the alternator tested. Keep me posted on what you find.

I took in the car today and the battery was a cheap recycled one. Nothing wrong anywhere else. Alternator fine. So had it replaced with a new heavy duty battery. Oh boy labour these days yipes. Anyway everything else checked out and thanks again for your advice. I appreciated it greatly. Being on my own is hard at times. I took it in to a small garage in the area. So I know everything was done correctly. You have no idea how much I appreciated your advice. God bless you.
