1998 Other Plymouth Models 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 70000 miles

I have a 1998 plymouth neon expresso. I went out to start it and it cranked but would not turn over. So I let it sit and went back out to the car and tried it again and had nothing like it was dead. So I went out and bought a new battery thinking that was the problem and it was not. So what do you think is wrong
