My Dodge did that! Turned out that it was oil falling onto the starter. My heat shield had dissintegrated and I had an oil leak...The only way to start it was to use a broomstick and hit the starter while turning the
I gave up and went and had a new starter put in,a heat shield,and got the hose fixed that was spraying oil onto motor...
I'm not saying that this is what's wrong with your's however.
It could be spark plugs,starter,etc.
Have you checked for any leaks? The spark plugs?
Just a few things to look at before calling a mechanic. Hope this helps.

That could very well be the problem, you will have to rreplace it sooner or later. Might as well be now because it will cause problems with misfire and catalytic converter overheating.

Replaced battery. car turns over but will not fire

If it was running prior to replacing the battery, then in the trunk behind the carpet (usually on the drivers side) there's a re-set button for the fuel system.
This may slove your problem, it's a good place to start.

Headlight replacement for 2005 Kia Spectra....what are steps? Thanks! I have bought a 2 pack of bulbs, figuring the other light is not far behind (going bad). So, I am rreplacing both bulbs.

  1. Remove the cover by unscrewing it counter clockwise
  2. Holding the bulb in, try to pull on the connection cable from the bulb
  3. Undo the pressure wire from the bulb frame
  4. carefully remove the bulb, in the left (battery) side can be tricky if you got BIG hands, but you DO NOT have to remove the battery
  5. Repeat the steps backwards for installation of the new ones
  6. Remember to connect the cable AFTER you have install the bulb and reattached the pressure wire
