Well at least she knew to put in the oil and where to put it so I give her half credit for that. Some people don't know that much. I have forgotten caps before... Basically everything has been said, check the oil level. As far as the alternator you could do a voltage test. When running should be at about 13.9 to 14.4 I think.
