If the battery is continually going flat, first test that the alternator is charging at least 13.5 volts at the battery. If that is ok check the current drain when the car is turned off. It should be less than .050Amp (50 milliamps) If all that is ok get the battery tested. If its more than 3 years old its likely to have a weak cell and will need replacing.

For a car to run it must have ignition, fuel and air (for combustion). each of these can be checked easily:
1) If you have a rubber glove or plastic bad, take off the to the distributor (from the coil) and hold it with the glove or plastic material about 1/4 inch from a piece of clear metal on the car body or engine (a bolt works). If it sparks the ignition is ok when you have someone crank over the engine.
2) take the top of the air cleaner off to see if you can confirm gasoline is being pumped when someone cranks the engine. Or, get some starter fluid and spray it into the air cleaner when it is cranked over by someone. If it starts and dies again it is either your fuel pump or it is out of gas. If the air cleaner is dirty try the above without it (replace if dirty).
If the above does not work it needs to be checked by a mechanic.
