Water pump went out, in the process of replacing I messed up the timing, we fixed it once but it was still slightly off, car started but sounded really bad, fixed it again and started it and it sounded great, put the rest of the pullies and belts on and went to go for a test drive and the car wouldnt start. I tried jumping it and I replaced the spark plugs, nothing worked. I can bump start it but it dies while idling, motor still sounds good, no clunking or clinking, but I cant keep it alive. Please help =( thank you

Check the charging sys. And battery. Do a draw test on the battery at any parts store. Charge the battery and go their.

We know for sure that the battery is bad, but we have tested other batterys and had no success

Youll need to replace it and have the system checked.
