Okay guys i go start my car this morning and it cranks but it doesn't turn over I try again and still nothing. I tried 2 minutes later it turns over but then it died . What could the problem be fuel pump maybe ?

Out of gas, fuel pump, fuel pump relay, ECU, the list goes on. You'll need to figure out if it's getting gas or spark.

most common problem without actually diagnosing from my experience is the fuel pump.
It's on it's way out... I do have one if interested...But you can check as the above mentioned post first. pm me if you want one.

Okay guys so what ended up happening is I flooded the engine I need to give the car a tune up and everything should be good. I checked for spark and i was getting fuel. What I did was I unplugged the fuel pump cranked then plugged it back in and she fired up. Thank you to everyone for your suggestions.
