It turns over but doesn't start, right?

It could be a fuel delivery problem. It could also be a bad coil pack. Or an Spark problem. Actually. It could be a few things. I would start with the spark plugs, wires, coil packs, check everything make sure it's all working.
How long has it been since you've changed your fuel filter? That could be clogged.

If that doesn't work, it could be an internal problem, which I can't help you with.

yea checked the spark plugs and everything then i tried spraying starter fluid in and it cranked for a sec so ive narrowed it down to fuel delivery...im guessing the fuel filter..

Can you hear the fuel pump cycle when you turn the switch on?

Do the security relearn procedure and see if it will start then. If the problem keeps coming back, then your ignition switch is going bad.
