Q: Q: Truck won't start

asked by on

I just replaced the battery in my truck. When I turn the key over it sounds like it wants to start but isn't getting that extra little something to make it start. If I bounce the vehicle around while trying to start it it sounds like it gets better. I put more gasoline in it thinking that was the problem but it still won't start. It seems like the gas maybe isn't traveling or something. Could it be fuel filter or something else? Please help.

My car has 200000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
