1999 Jeep ZJ startup. Bad Throttle? Broken, Help!

Let me start off by saying this is my first ever car, I know little to nothing about cars. It all started Monday, two days ago. I went to the gas station to fill up the jeep, the nozzle stopped only about halfway through the fillup. I turned on the engine and the tank was only about half way full. I tried to gas her up again and the thing clicked after about two seconds, I couldn't get more gas, thought it might be a problem with the pump but I tried another pump at a different station and it didn't work. Strange. Today I tried to start the jeep, it was trying to turn over but it couldn't quit get started, I tried this over 10 times within a couple hours and nothing happened. I had someone jump start it and it still wouldn't start up. I pulled on the throttle a few times and went to try to start it up, it worked. Here's the problem though, it makes some crazy noise starting up, and sometimes it still won't start up. My coolant sensor is bad aswell (at least that's what the jeeps telling me) but I have no idea if that has anything to do with it. Bought this jeep :Last month and it had been running fine. Any input is much appreciated guys, remember I am brand new to the car world. Search "JEEP ZJ Startup Broken Help" by haydenkelsey99 on youtube. that's the startup of my jeep (wouldn't let me use a link in my post or post the original file).
