motor will turn over but will not start, could it be the fuel pump?
when you turn the key to the ON postion, to you hear the fuel circulating through the fuel rail? if no...think there is a fuel pump relay at play here...one sec, lemme check no relay found but a fuel cutoff switch and a skippy-fresh U-tube video~ check the power to it if you can~ get your diagnostic trouble codes read if you can~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqA4s6mxYNE
could also be the ignition if you're hearing circulating fuel---check for 12V at the positive side of the coil packs with the ignition on~
