Won't crank? Cranks but won't start? Starts but won't stay running? If you're replacing the battery and it's dead a couple of days later, check the alternator for a draw. If you're jump-starting a dead battery and trying to make the alternator charge it - you're cooking your alternator and never will charge your battery properly. If your car starts and runs fine most days but cranks and won't start on others, I'd consider the fuel pump module. If you're stumped, I'd consider spending the $100 and have a Pro check it out - not the neighborhood Hillbilly that knows a thing-or-two about cars either.
