Car cranks but won't turn over

So it started a couple days ago when my battery kept dying on me. I kept jumping it with the jump pack and letting it run for a few min but everytime I shut it off it was dead again. While this was going on the battery in my key fob died also. Replaced that, and jumped the car again a few days later. This time it cranked but wouldn't turn over. The only way I could get it to run was to pump the gas as I was cranking it. After doing that a little I got it to run. Two days later(today), battery was dead so this time I put a charger on it for the day. Went to go start it tonight and it did it again. Would crank but not turn over, and this time pumping the gas peddle would not work. As soon as I let off the gas it died. Felt like the car had power though since everything turned on ok. Anyone have an idea what this could be? Just purchased the car a couple months ago and not sure how old the battery is or what kind. It is a 98 gts with 72k miles

Sounds like dead battery. These cars need a healthy juice box. Duralast Platinum AGM from AutoZone is the way to go.

dead battery, stop kidding yourself and change it, batter is located in the driver side quarter panel. take off the back driver side wheel and start from there to get to your battery.

Any thoughts on whether after having a dead battery over and over and over and over and over and over again, if the battery needs replacing?

Hey, not trying to seem like the smart guy here, but I wanted to bring it up.

This is a great opportunity to get some exercise. Start pushing, then pop the clutch to get'r started.

Being around cars all my life, "Car Cranks and Turns Over" are the same thing to me.
Cranks/Turns over and won't fire ...ok

Also, what the Hell took so long before you decided to hook it to a car charger??

If this problem is stumping you, please Do Not try to do anything else to your car


My tire keeps going flat, I keep pumping it up and I hear a hissing sound but it keeps going flat.....any suggestions? I just purchased the car a few months ago and I'm not sure what to do.

Meant to say cranks but wont start. U know what I mean. Its aggravating wanting to drive my car but I cant because the weather in buffalo sucks dick. I'm trying to get all the bugs worked out because the second we get a decent day I wanna drive her. Replacing the battery was first on my list so on break im gonna throw a new one in and fire it up.

Your car is turning over so I highly doubt it's the starter

Do you hear the fuel pump run when you turn the key on before cranking it over?

Yes. My next guess was plugs. I'm thinking since ive been turning it over all week and its not been starting, the plugs fouled out and theres fuel in the cylinders. The exhaust smelled prty rich and I didn't want to touch the gas pedal any more until I figure it out.

You needed a new battery if you were having to jump it. Next on my list would be fuel pump.

If you wetted the plugs playing the dead battery game, and now you have a new (good) battery, we were right, and you haven't done the right thing yet. Try cranking it while holding the pedal at WOT. That will cut the fuel and dry the plugs.
