    So are you hearing the starter motor spin, but you don't hear the engine turning over? If this is the case, I would check the starter solenoid.

    Sounds like you need a new fuel pump. They go sour around 80K/miles. I had the same thing occur except I got 117K/miles out of mine.

    I have the same problem with my 2005 but when I had the fuel pump tested it had good and instantaneous pressure. The shop was unable to duplicate the problem at so we replaced the ~75$ relay that controls the fuel pump which did not help. This problem occurs ~30-40% of the time in normal use. Any other suggestions? I have not replaced plugs or wires or cleaned the injectors could this be part of the problem?

    are you getting a check engine light?

    Get'r'Scanned and see if you are getting a P0342 or P0341... Camshaft Position Sensor....
