I was driving my car into my drive way and it quit. I have a half a tank of gas. When I went to try and start it all it does is turn over and not fire. When i turn the key halfway in the ignition I can hear the fuel pump kick on. What is the problem?

I would try changing the fuel filter and/or pump. My brother had to take the exhaust system off the bottom of the car and then pull the gas tank to get to the fuel filter.
Hope this helps.
My problem was after I would drive the car and the engine would heat up. Once I parked and then tried to start it again while engine was still warm, it would not start. Strangely enough, a jump would solve the problem. But it happened over and over. Once we changed the fuel pump and filter, it never happened again. If you are under there replacing the fuel filter, I recommend changing the fuel pump as well. No sense in having to go through that awful hassle twice.
The fuel tank must be drained, fuel lines and vent lines disconnected. Disconnect the filler tube that leads to the filler neck. Unplug the wire harness that leads to the top of the fuel tank.
Remove both straps holding the tank into position.
Remove the gas tank and the pump is located in the fuel sending unit that is accessed thru the top of the fuel tank.
Suspect either the camshaft or crankshaft sensor is failing with engine heat. If you could get the check engine light to stay on, a scanner would likely reveal the problem. If you could hook up the scanner and drive with it on, it might reveal the problem at the moment of failure.
The tire shake may be a tire that is out of balance or a bad outer tie rod end. The tank has pressure on it and when you take the cap off the pressure is relieved. Try putting the nozzle in not so far in to pump gas.
