Question about 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Classic
We were driving down the road one day and in just quit, we towed it back because it wouldn't start or turn over even when boosted by another car. We tried charging the battery but that also didn't work. The car makes a sort of clicking sound from the dash when the key is engaged. My father said it may of been the timeing chain but i don't know where that is or how to fix this! Could this be the problem, or could this be somthing else? HELP I NEED THIS CAR TO RUN!!
That Clicking is the Battery causing it not to Start. You need to Replace that Battery or at Least put a Charger on it for a Couple of hours to see if you can Salvage it for a While.

Have you checked your starter. Just had this same thing happen with a 93 Chevrolet Pickup where the solienoid connection had gone bad. (wiggled) He and his friends were replacing batteries, pulled the positive lead on the starter and it got enough connection to start. Replaced it the next day doing fine.

As the car re-started, the battery is not flat.
The voltages measured indicate a problem with either the power or ground connection in the circuit between the alternator and the battery.
You likely have a intermittent / poor ground connection somewhere in the power system.
Check battery terminals are clean and firmly attached.
Check battery cable and alternator ground connections are intact and in good order.
