    When you turn the ignition on, you should hear a humming noise as the fuel pump starts up (lasts around 3 seconds).....its actually beneath the rear seat cushion - or at least the tank is.
    Any noises?

    has it been difficult to start for a while or just happened?

    could be a stretched timing chain. need more details.
