I dont want to be a jerk but can you provide anymore information? does it stall immediatley after starting? does it sound any diffrent when you started it last time than at times before? Have you done the fuel relay, thats usually the most common ailment. you got a friend you can borrow for a few? have your friens shove his ear agains the gas cap while you turn the ignition on, you may be able to do this by yourself. but turn the ingtion on but dont crank it, your friend or you should be able to hear the fuel pump whine. if not the its the relay. if you replace the relay and it still doesnt start, then repeat the steps above to see if the fuel pump went out. hope this somewhat helps.

Sorry, I should'a posted more, I think the frustration had over taken me! But anyways, I put the key in and turn it, the lights come on and the dash lights up and the engine cranks like normal...everything sounds normal, but just doesn't turn over...I'll try what you posted zmandude6 and post back later tonight! Thanks for the help.

I can understand your frustration, it can be a pain when stuff just doesnt work. just dont let it get in the way of working on your car. rush jobs or getting mad at the car only ends in more pain. take it slow with a cool head.

Hey man, thanks for staying on this with me. After a long day at work I just got back home and got the wife to turn the key for me and I ran to the back of the car to give that gas tank a listen to and to my suprise there was definately a motor winey noise engauging when she turned the key! So, I guess I'm at a loss again...any suggestions at this point of the game?

Well, That takes out the fuel system. I got a few things to take stabs at. Check the fuel filter to see if its clogged, just releive the system fuel pressure first. After that, see if the electricity is getting to the spark plugs, take out the fuse to the fuel pump so that the fuel isnt spraying all over you, and then pull out a sparkplug and have the wife crank the car and look for a spark jumping the gap, if theres no spark then the igniton coil, distributer, or distributer wires, and spark plugs. may need replaceing, although if it was the spark plug then the car would just struggle to start. change the air filter if it looks really dirty. I know these seem like its all in random order but Its all part of narrowing it down.
