Check battery voltage without running vehicle, should read 12.4 minimum. if it's lower, recharge or replace battery

When you say it doesn't crank, that means it doesn't do anything. Is that correct or is it trying to start but it doesn't

when you try to crank it after about 8 cranks it will crank then shut off and seems to worst* the more i try to crank

HAVE TO PAT THE GAS TO GET IT STARTED AND THEN AT TIMES THAT DOESN'T EVEN WORK

Ok. Try spraying some starting fluid in the throttle body to see if it'll run for a bit, if it does, then u need to check fuel pressure, if it still doesn't then u need to check spark on the plugs

I WAS TOLD IT COULD BE A UPSTREAM OR DOWNSTREAM SENSOR? IS THAT SOMETHING THAT COULD BE CAUSING IT ? AND DO YOU KNOW WHERE I CAN FIND THAT PART

They're on the exhaust pipe, before and after catalytic converter, it may be the catalytic that's plugged up

Turn the key to on leave for 10 to 15 sec then start it I have the same problem
