Default Car wont start -_-

Guys I'm having a great day guys lol. Maybe someone can let me know what I'm doing wrong lol

Well yesterday the brake and battery light came on and the car died on me i turned it back on and when i was heading home and the car just shut off and wouldn't turn on. so I knew that meant the alternator the next day I buy the alternator and boom I put it on and I try to turn on the car and nothing like it would crank but wouldn't stay on (I have a new starter btw) so I go and get a new battery and it started and just died right after and I'm kept trying and it just kept dying. So I got starter fluid and it didn't do anything better. People say the fuel pump but I hear the two clicks before I try to turn the car idk what could it be.


P.s engine was recently rebuilt and had a tune up in September so new plugs wires the whole nine.


HELP ME NASIOC lol

If the engine was cranking over but not starting, I would think you original alternator was fine. Sounds like you should get the fuel pressure tested. Have you checked the fuel filter?

It could also be a timing issue, or a bad crank position sensor.

Does it sound faster than normal when you try starting it(cranking faster)? As stated already it could be a bad crank or cam sensor.

Make sure to try to get a good diagnosis this time. No sense in replacing parts that aren't the problem. But it's your money.
