Since you seem to suggest that it's not a battery problem, if you're not hearing anything happening when you turn the key, it is likely to be your starter motor solenoid or the relay. You'll need a multimeter to check voltage across either.

Or, the ignition key switch. In other words, something in the electrical starter circuit. – kmarsh May 25 at 2:35

I would check the starter connections as well as the starter itself. You can take the starter off and take it to AutoZone. They will check your starter for free or you can Take the starter off and test the solenoid and the actuator yourself at home with jumper cables.

Fuel Injection might be faulty check Air Filter element also.

Could you expand on this? What might be wrong with the injection? How should you check it, etc? – Nick C May 24 at 12:17
