Question about Cars & Trucks
First check the fuses related to the start circuit, if all fuses are good. Another quick check while you are in the area is the PCM relay. Take it out tap it lightly and reinsert back into the panel.
try to start with all fuses checked and PCM relay back in.
if still no start and you have some knowledge of starter motors and how they work, take a multi tester and check if you are getting voltage to start solenoid when your assistant is positioning the key to start.
if you have voltage and you hear nothing, try tapping the start solenoid (gently) and see if the starter then motors.
If still nothing then you most likely need to replace the starter solenoid/starter motor.

a girlfriend had the same problem.. I found air in the fuel rail. After a few times of bleeding it everytime it happened, problem seemed to be solved. I think it may have been a pickup hose leak in the fuel tank

Fuel pressure and spark is the first to check. The noise could be the starter needs shimmed.

If you can hear the starter engage the flywheel but the engine does not turn over the next step would be ruling out physical seizing of the motor. The most common approach is to remove the accessory belt(s) then turn the engine manually by rotating the crankshaft pulley with an appropriate size socket and breaker bar. If you are unable to turn the crankshaft the motor is seized, in most cases this means your into an overhaul or replacement motor. In some cases this can be caused by what is referred to as hydra-locking, in this case the engine can be saved easily without any damage if handled correctly.
