Car cranks but won't turn over

  • 225,000 MILES

I just bought this car about a month ago. Since I got it thus problem has become more and more frequent culminating with my car parked at Walmart for two days now because it won't start. When I turn the key, the engine cranks but won't turn over. There is very little gas in it right now but I know it's not out - juš put 1.5 gallons in it and drove only 2 miles. Also, I've noticed that the first time I crank it the gas gauge moves very slightly but any more tries to crank it after the first the gauge doesn't move at all. And then I leave it alone for 15 min to several hours and come back to start it and the gauge once again moves on the first crank only. I have no idea if this is relevant or not. I'm a single mothers I am very limited on funds so I'd like to find out if this is something I can try to do myself (keeping in mind that I don't know a lot about car mechanics).

Do you
have the same problem?
