Are you saying the starter spins but does not engage? If so you need a new starter.

If the engine is turning over but not starting the next things to check for are spark and gas. Have you done a tuneup lately? Changed the fuel filter?

I had a tune up in April and ran fine for 2 months then would not start. I would leave it a day and it would start. It has happened a few times. Now 3 days left still no start ?

Check your fuel pump and fuse. When you turn on the key you should hear a faint hum if it is running.

Spray some starting fluid right in to intake... not too much.. a 3-4 second squirt, and if it runs for a few seconds then dies you know it's a fuel starvation problem. If it doesn't catch and run at all then it's spark.
