tonight my car died twice on the way to work. when i came home everything was fine,alt guage was normal oil normal temp normal. but then trouble shooting ,with lights and radio on volts were normal. when i turned the heater on high the volts dropped way down to the n, and dont recover till i turn it off.these tests were done with the car in gear. does this sound like a bad regulator or the alt its self.

I think Auto Zone will test your alternator and battery for free. If the alternator isn't putting out the proper volts, then replace it. Otherwise, you have a different problem.
