So my dd has started developing... issues...was starting fine, parked it for a few months while I put the truck on the road, recommissioned the firefly and now she's being a c**t, at first starting it took a boost and it stalled then another boost and it was running fine, drove it to work went to camp for a month came back drove it home (after a very hard start) and then she stalled when I got home, started to chug and then kapoot, now the starter sounds like its struggling to get anything going, sounds super weak unless its got the truck revved to about 5500 rpm then it sounds fine for about a minute and quits again! Now I don't have access to a compression tester for another two weeks and I'm thinking I've pooched the motor but I have a feeling you guys would know a lot better, its a 98 firefly G10 200,000km new rotor cap wires and plugs

Battery probably crapped the bed. Hope you didn't hurt the alternator too.
