Car Problem, please help

I don't know what the hell happen when my friend drove my car but it died. He said before it died, the Intake was like having trouble sucking in air. We jump start the car, it started find untill i put it in drive then it died. The battery and Intake is fine. I then jump start my car again and let it idle and it idle like it was going to stall out. I give it some gas but the engine wasn't roaring like it used too, a very low roar w/ the Intake sputtering. Oh once i turn my car off, I have to jump start it again. any help?? thanks guys.

Life is like a dream...Hopefully when you wake up it isn't like mine.

How long have you had the Intake? I don't think anything is wrong with your car, our cars are brand new. Unless you have many miles on it. It could be the Intake, a vacuum leak. Some Intakes have had problems with a hose disconnecting. Are you sure you checked all of that? If all that is good, its your alt. or battery This is what I think. Check it out.
Reason I think its your alt. or batt: Mainly because the only way it started was because of a jump. Once you put it in drive, it died. Therefore the alt. was not keeping the battery charged, unless the battery is completely dead. Maybe your electronics have drained the crap out of the battery, or since your interior is stripped, there is a light on or something that is what we call a parametric draw. It is constantly on, therefore draining your battery.

Hope this helps.

PS: I still think it is your Intake, if not then check your charging system with a voltmeter.
