'lude symptoms......HELP

ok i must drive this thing tomorrow it has i believe a blown head gasket

last night i put the battery charger on the car and after work i came home and took the car to the gas station (1.5 miles away)
i didnt drive the car to work just the gas station
no radio , still daylight ........after i put gas in the car ..DEAD battery
i understand the whole not charging idea but dead within 2 miles?? WTF!

oh and for some odd reason the car will not start with out a FULL charge on the battery again WTF????

not even clutch starting

im going to find out here later if the girl still wants my accord for 1500 bucks
if so i will rebuild my engine and carbs over the weekend

since i have an business account at a foreign parts house i get my stuff up to 60% off retail :)

now dont quote me but the battery could be dead umm if your alternator was going it could have fried your battery and if thats the case it can have not enough power to turn on your fule pump or coil make it not even able to push start, take that battery to shucks or any autoparts store and that should be able to tell you if the battery is dead

your terminals could be loose on the battery, make sure they are on there tight, my (-) was loose and caused my car to do the same thing, start with full charge be dead later, etc.
