    We could help you better if you were more specific about the problem. Is it that the starter doesn't crank the engine or is it that the starter cranks the engine OK but it won't start running? Did you replace the battery because of this problem?
    If the engine spins over OK on the starter but won't start running, I'd check for spark and fuel pressure. I'd be suspicious of the fuel pump beginning to fail (low fuel pressure) or the ignition system (weak or no spark).
