Yeah, it could be crank sensor, fuel pump going bad, dirty fuel filter, etc... But, if you say it wants to start, I'd look toward fuel filter first, then perhaps fuel pump.

do u hear the pump prime when u key up the ignition? and id agree with mtmonarch id replace fuel filter no matter what u need to get a fuel gauge on the car to see the pump pressure spec is 50 to 60 psi
