My car wont start, when trying to start it cranks but will not turn over, and with continuous tries the battery ends up draining and I end up having to have the car jumped and the battery power restores but will drain right back down when trying to start a number of times. I have checked the fuel pump and it seems to be working including having a spray at the fuel rail stem thing. I did check each of the spark plugs and none of them are firing, but I don't know if that has anything to do with battery being low or not. I have also checked the battery connections and they too seem to be fine and clean. I don't know how to check the compression, so I have not checked that yet. If you have any insight on this it'd be greatly appreciated, because as it stands right now I have very little money and wont be having another paycheck for 2 weeks. So I'd really like to do the checking on my own versus having car towed to a mechanic.
Thanks for your time. Jessica
