When I went to start the car, the RPM would start to rise like the car was about to start, but then the car would shut off, and the Check Engine Light and Battery Light would be on.
Finally I got the car started by giving gas as the RPM's were about to fall. Do I need a new battery?
Most likely it is your battery.
Since it's a 98, do you know if the battery has been changed in the 6 or so yrs as of yet?
