Have to start by checking some things, like see if there is spark, and if you have the correct fuel pressure. Check for spark first.

Hopefully its not your starter going out... Or that thing it catches (flexplate?). Sometimes you can shake the car in that spot to get you somewhere if it IS your starter. Sux... Used starters are just as expensive as new ones...
