Hello, my name is***** for the question. By far the most common cause of this is a failing crank position sensor. It is a common intermittent failure on this engine and if the computer does not get a signal from it then it will not start. If you have a computer scan tool you can see if any codes came up but most of the time it will not set a code for it. Did you plan on fixing this yourself?
