starter's gone maybe. Had the same behavior. No crank at all. I think a bad crankshaft position sensor could cause this too.

Good price. Dealer charge 320 for me for 5 (**** extended warranty paid for 1) but they didn't charge labor. I'm not a mechanic but I don't think changing plugs @ 80K miles is a bad idea. Good luck.
