if battery is weak the idle air control solenoid will search for the right position and stall have battery load tested if good put in a idle air control solenoid..

I agree that it's probably the Crankshaft Position Sensor (CPS). Without the pulse from this sensor, you vehicle will never start. Sometimes water from a leaking water pump will run down onto this sensor and cause it to fail.
You can go to MSN Auto for your vehicle and under the "Reliability" tab you will see the same thing regarding the CPS (listed under Engine issues).

Is the Service Engine Soon (or Check Engine) light illuminated on the instrument panel? If so, then have someone pull the codes and post them back here. Autozone will do this for you at no cost.Caution: don't purchase any parts after reading the codes on their recommendation! If no codes, then suspect either a bad crankshaft sensor or camshaft sensor. There are other possibilities too, but these are primary. I have seen MANY bad crank sensors do exactly what your describe without setting a code.
