Welcome to 2CarPros.

When you say it sounds like it is trying to start but can't, do you mean the starter is turning the engine but it fails to start? I need to know so I can help. Otherwise, I may not give you the right information.

Here are a couple general links for you to see. Let me know which one mirrors the condition.

If the problem seems to be closer related to the second link, let me know if the check engine light was staying on while the engine ran, prior to the problem.

Let me know.
