94 lebaron help

just bought used car 3 weeks ago. when i turn the key, engine not turning over. all electrical seems to work(lights, radio etc.), get a try like 4 or 5 times then it starts. a couple times while driving if i let up on gas, car stalls. then takes a while to get started again. just started happening a couple days ago. tonite,made it almost to driveway then it stalled. couldn't get it to turn over. by turn over i mean the engine doesn't crank at all. sometimes will get a a small hum like its about to start but doesn't. check engine light then comes on. could it be the battery or the starter? any help would be great. hope i didn't buy a lemon!

I would aslo have the charging system checked; you could also have an alternator problem. Clean and tighten all battery cable and starter connections first. If either of your battery terminals is the bolt-on replacement type they are notorious for corrosion so check that as well.

one problem fixed, now another.

I jumped the car and it started so i changed the battery. Now it will start most of the time. sometimes i turn the key and nothing happens. could it still be the starter?

It could be the starter/solenoid or the alternator if the battery is not getting charged.
