My car shut off while driving. It would begin to turn but wouldn't crank. Had to jump it off to get home. Stayed crunk for awhile but battery eventually died again & won't crank.

Check the alternator,and make sure your battery is good.

That's what random people are telling me. But someone said the fuel pump. I just don't want to keep spending money and the problem not be fixed. Just put a new starter on it & was able to drive maybe 3/4 miles & it happened again.
