about 5 minutes and as i attempted to turn it on it started to shake and it tried to turn
on but it just died RPM wasnt going up i tried several times and it was the same result.
shaking RPM wanting to go up and than it would die. can someone please steer me in
the direction of what it might be!!!!!! car has 162000 miles but has always been upkept
properly just this last time i let the oil change go over due for a short while but recently

Could be a number of things,check plugs,sounds like a misfire with the shakes.If that does not fix it,try checking your fuel pump. Good luck with it. Repost if what i said doe,s not fix your problem.
