I can't keep renting a car every time this thing doesn't start.
If the starter turns the engine when you crank it, it is not the starter. It would either be a fuel delivery or an ignition problem. Is the security light on when you crank it? If so, the BCM is preventing you from starting it because it cannot read the transponder in the key. It could also be a fuel pump or PCM problem. Any other lights on? Have you tried cranking it again after 5 or 10 minutes? More details = advice that will be more on target.
