Question about Cars & Trucks
You may need a mechanic for this.
If the engine cranks the starter and battery are ok.
It if cranks but does not start, you would need to know if you have spark to the plugs, fuel to the injectors and normal compression.
To answer your other question, you would remove the spark plugs and use a gauge to check compression.

If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.

you are either lacking SPARK or FUEL. You put 5 gal in the tank, but is the FUEL PUMP working ? The lights and radio operating only indicate ther is power in the battery.. Hope this helps.

It might not have enough fuel pressure. Try spraying carb cleaner into the throttle body when you crank it to see if it fires.
