I have replaced the starter (twice), water pump, tension pulley, a belt (twice), battery, and a fuel pump. I thought my car had another problem because of how it was running, was told it could have been bad gas, ran rubbing alcohol through the gas tank, as I was driving down the road, I was pumping the gas pedal to try and run the "bad gas" out, then my car started acting out. It was spitting and sputtering and backfiring and acting like it was gonna stall. I pulled into a parking lot and it died. Then it wouldn't start back up. I also have a crack in my radiator, temporary fixed by jb weld, but I cannot afford to replace it. PLEASE help me pinpoint the problem, I am a single mother of 2 and cannot be wo a car.
I need help identifing what exactly is wrong with my car so I can get it running on 1995 Chevrolet Corsica

it sounds like your just throwing parts at it hoping it will be right. it will be cost effective to have it diag by your mech. explain your situation and maybe he will help you out at n/c for the diag
