I could be your fuel filter or your mass airflow censer, check them both.

Get a can of starting fluid. Remove the air intake tube that goes from the filter to the throttle body. Squirt some starting fluid in the intake. Try to start the car. If it fires and dies, you have a fuel delivery problem. If it doesn't fire, you have a ignition problem. A common cause is a failed fuel pump or bad fuel pump relay.
