I need a little more information to answer your question.
If your car has the 3.0L 6 cylinder engine;

Part Number: 48-72
Cold Cranking Amps: 730/Cranking Amps: 915/Reserve Capacity: 130

If your car is has the 4.7L V8
Part Number: 49-72
950 CCA/760 EN CA/100 AH Reserve Capacity

Both have a 72 Month P/R Warr 2yr Free Replacement warranty.

These are taken from the web site. However, I would recommend that you go to a quality battery vender.

Replace clutch in 1998 f-150 v-6 4.2 5 speed

That is a big job. Buy a service manual. I prefer haynes. You can get one for your exact model of truck. They will walk you thru the entire process step by step with pictures. And only cost around $20. It takes an experienced mechanic around 4 to 6 hours (with help and proper tools) to do the job, you can expect at least double that, maybe triple.

My wife left the lights on and ran the battery down. I have jumped it successfully but it is not recharging. Is it the battery and what should I expect if I go and replace it?

The alternator can maintain a charge on a good battery. It's not designed to recharge a dead battery. You should have both the battery and the alternator tested to make sure they are ok. If the battery and alternator both test out ok, have the battery charged and everything should work fine.

Which battery would you replace a 2003 Toyota Tacoma's with?

I prefer Interstate Batteries. They seem to last longer than the others. Costco brand is about 30% less cost, if that is an issue.
I dislike Sears Die Easy, as I have witnesses sooooo many die much quicker than expected.

How much does a timing belt cost? and what could I expect to pay the mechanic on a 2002 Kia Rio Cino

The timing belt is not the big cost,if the belt has broken while you where driving the car the you may need to spend up to $3000 dollars to repair the damage caused by a broken belt.If your belt is not broke and you have over 50000 miles then get it replaced,expect to pay about $600-$900.This is dependant of labour rates and problems occurred during the repair,your price may be lower.

The battery light has just come on for my 2001 vw golf. what does this mean? how do i know if it's the alternator, battery or something else? and how much should a new battery or alternator cost. FYI this...

When the light comes on, it is a signal that you are using more electricity than is being produced, below some threshold. If it continues to stay on when you rev the engine, it is probably your alternator. A 9 year old vehicle is a candidate for an alternator replacement, and probably a battery replacement, though you may not need a battery right now. Expect to pay $150.00 or more for the alternator if you are doing the work. Expect to replace your battery for around $125.00 if you are doing the work. I would expect a shop would do this work for about $375.00 depending on where you are located. If you are doing the work, expect to spend 3 hours on this job if you have the right tools, including bandaids.

Thanks for your interest in
