Sounds like fuel filter or the fuel pump may be going. When you turn on the ignition, without cranking it, you should hear the fuel pump make a buzzing noise. If you have that, the pump should be OK, in which case it may be the filter, or perhaps clogged injectors. If you can get it started again, add some fuel injector cleaner to the fuel tank and take it for a good drive. Good luck!
