......do you think I need a new battery or starter, the car was leaking quite a bit do to the amount of rain we have been having here in Florida but not sure if that is what caused it...thanks so much Sean
Not sure if you'll find anyone on this forum with a crystal ball. But I'm sure you'll find plenty of people on this and/or other forums who want you to think they can diagnose your problem with the meager information provided.
My BEWAG would be to say it's the battery, simply due to age if it's the original. That being said, since we don't know anything else about the car, and are obviously unable to perform any tests, there are several possibilities.
So you really have two choices. Start replacing parts until your car starts or pay someone who is qualified to make the determination to repair it.
