Well if the altenator is charging it will run after getting a jump, you replied you put a battery charger on it but that dont mean the cold cranking amps are good or it could have a dead cell. I would have the battery tested for sure. If you didnt drive far after jump the altenator may be bad but having the battery charged and still does it tells me it is least likely. If the battery tests good the cables could be corroded under the sheath where you cant see. There are other reasons but from what you have posted sounds like you need a battery most auto stores test them for free (load test also)

Engine wont start


-Check spark plug. It could be too wet of gasoline it you crank so many times and not fire.
-Try this: Hole the gas pedal all the way down then start. Make sure as soon as it fire release the gas pedal immediately.

2001 Camry Often Won't Start When Hot Outside Unless Jumped


well is the battery draining over the time its sitting?
could be a bad battery or alternator, and/or you might have something on the car constantly draining power from the battery.
best to have it looked at by a mechanic.

1986 cadillac fleetwood is making me loca(crazy)


It all depends on the AC compressor , is it the freely bearing that has jammed or is the compressor itself totally jammed!
You will have to remove the fanbelt onthe compressor and lossen the pulley better if you can remove it, it should come out togther with the bearing .
This will show if its the bearing tht has siezed or the compressor itself.
Hope this helps!

I have a 2001 GMC Yukon. It was running fine until two days ago. I went to start it on Saturday and it would only make a clicking noise. I was able to start it with jumper cables. I drove for an hour...


i had the same exact problem with my chevy s-10, but once i replaced the battery it ran fine no problem, u may have fried some circuits and relays while jumping the car, and alot of times that clicking noise is your relay burning out, did your car start doing weird things too? like ejecting cd's, flashing lights really fast and weird noises?
