I have a 2005 Toyota Camry LE 4 cylinder, I got in a wreck and the body shop fixed it and repaired it, but they didn't fix the most important part, getting the car to run. They replaced the fenders, the hood, the radiator, radiator support, and a few other things. After I crashed, the car ran for like another 30 minutes. After I crashed the fuel showed empty, so I put $45 of gas in but it still showed empty. I then parked the car, and in morning I tried to start the car, the car was trying to start but it wouldn't start. I put water in the radiator, even though it was cracked. I kept pushing on the pedal, and finally got it to start, I drove about 1 mile, got $18 of gas, tried to start car again, kept pushing on pedal, started it, and drove about 6 miles, and it died, I tried to start it again, but it wouldn’t start. The car would try to start, but it just wouldn’t start. I even tried jumping it, but it wouldn’t start. After the repairs were made, frame was pulled, radiator replaced, the guys said the fuel shows ¾ tank of gas, and said he charged it a long time, and kept at it and it started for a minute or so and then died. Any clue on what it could be. I pray it’s the alternator or started, and nothing big, I cannot afford for it to be something big.
