I was driving my car and it started ticking loudly like a diesel vehicle. The car lost power and when I stopped it shut off. It didnt want to start unless another car pushed me and it would start and then shut off. Now it wont start but the engine still turns over and wants to start. If I try to start it every other day, it tries to start but then just keeps cranking. Car is a standard 5 speed.

What ever happened, it will require more diagnosis to uncover the core issue. A compression/leak down test is the next thing to do
