It ran hot I replaced the radiator then gaskets

It was leaking from the lower intake gasket

It ran hot so I replaced the radiator then started leaking from lower intake then I replaced that and now it acts like it don't want to start

Strange because the repair you did wouldn't prevent the car from starting? did you check to see if you maybe pulled a wire out while trying to change the gaskets. Did the battery go dead by leaving a door open or lights on, do you have 12 volts at the battery ?

It was leaking from the lower intake gasket No didn't pull a wire out . I even tried boosting and won't crank.it acts like its not getting fire

Then I would look past the battery, after the battery is the starter relay and then the starter. Or the netural safety switch.

When I have cables on it. It turns over and it acts like it wants to crank but it won't catch
