I assume this is a manual transmission , sounds like the clutch may have broken up , causing the flywheel not to turn when the starter is operated , will need to be seen by a mechanic

SOURCE: 1994 Toyota Camry Won't start.

you should check 3 things. AIr, Fuel, and "spark"
your cars could have many problems. Ignition module, fuel injectors, Mass Airflow Sensor.
You should check into all of these 3 things.
a crank-no start could be many things.
it could even be a cam positions sensors resistance going up when the engine heats up. Cracnk- no start means testing. n like i said
The motor is getting Air, There is Fuel being put into the cylinders, and the Spark plugs are firing.

SOURCE: my 2000 ford ranger and something draining battery

bad alternator possible or bad battery..even though its new that battery can be bad. I would take a volt meter and with the engine running check the volts of the battery..If the volts are 12 you need to replace alternator, if volts are 14 you need to check the battery. to check the battery hold the volt meter to the battery and have someone start the car..while the starter is cranking battery volts should not drop below 10volts.if they do your battery is bad.

Check fluid level, which I would assume has already been done.. If it is full(check with it in park and engine running) , then I would suspect that there is a problem with the torque converter. Hard to say much else without having a chance to test drive and see it do what you are saying.

sounds like the transmission is gone. If they bought it from a dealership then you should at least have a 30 day warranty. If it was bought from a private owner, depending on the state, it could be covered by the lemon law. Most states have a lemon law on used automobiles. Good luck. P.S. sounds like the battery could be dead if you have to keep jump starting it.
