1988, Toyota Corolla FX, 124000 miles.
I am unable to crank the car. When I try doing so the battery terminals become excessively hot. The battery is almost brand new and I also had it tested.
The car made a loud clicking/grinding noise from somewhere near ( or from) the engine before it came to a halt.
Does the alternator have to be changed? Or could it be something else too?
