Will need some more information to help with this problem. Need engine size, is that 19,000 miles or 190,000 miles? Thanks for using 2CarPros

This sounds like it may be flooded, try holding the gas pedal on the floor to see if it will start. If it starts let off the pedal so you do not over rev the engine, and let it run for a bit to clear itself. Sometimes these things have problems out of the blue for no apparent reason. Watch and seen if you have a cloud of bluish, black smoke coming out of it, if this continues you have a problem, is your check engine light on? Thanks for using2CarPros
