Check your battery cables first. Then take it to a local parts house, they will test the starter, and the battery for free.

First check your batter and it's connections to make sure the proper amount of power is available. If the engine cranks over O.K. then check or replace the fuel filter. The problem could also be a bad coolant temperature sensor for the computer. If the computer thinks it's colder or hotter than it is it may flood the engine.

Probably the easiest hing to do is give it a tune up. Make sure the plugs are gapped correctly and replace them if they are old. Then make sure all you filters are good and your charging system is working properly.
