My 1999 navigator started right away then I turned it off. When I tried to start it 15 minutes later, I just here one click and the engine doesn't turn. I checked the battery and it had 12.35 volts. What possible problems can it be?

By losing power do you mean its RPM is dropping a lot even when you apply more gas? When you get on the highway and try to speed up does it seem hesitant or sluggish as well? This may be do to bad vacuum lines or a restricted air intake. Check the usual suspects like the air filter, spark plugs, spark plug wires and connectors. Check the power cables to the battery and alternator along with anything else. It may be that when your at an angle, a loose connection is falling back and causing the power loss. Me thinks this is the Spark plug wires, there may be a bad one in the bunch. While the car is running, get under the hood and wiggle the spark plug wires and if you get a bad one you will hear the car doing what it does when you go uphill. You can also check the vacuum lines as well.
Your friend could be right. Normally if you have a cylinder miss or a problem with the transmission you would get a check engine light and a trouble code. Low fuel pressure may not show up like that. You may want to check fuel pressure at idle and on the road.
If you getting a lean code you may want to start by changing the fuel filter. I'm not that familiar with the Navigator but, If you look at the coil pack they have them numbered. The right front (passenger side) cylinder is number "1" it's 1 2 3 down right side and 4 5 6 on the drivers side, that's for a V-6. A V-8 is the same except 1 2 3 4 and 5 6 7 8.
if the car ran good befrore you filled up ,there might be water in the fuel you pumped into the car,sometimes water gets into the gas station fuel tanks when it rains,try to drain your gas out and try fuel from another station
First disconnect and remove the battery. Then, remove gas cap to release pressure. Than remove fuel lines and drain gas into suitable container. Next, loosen the bolts (you can use a tranny jack or have someone else help hold tank and lower it down. Now you will want to use a BRASS punch. (do NOT use metal or it will cause a spark) Use brass punch and hammer and loosen nut on tank counter-clockwise to loosen sending unit. Once nut is loose, pull out sending unit and unplug the wire harness.
