2004 X3 won't start


Looks like this has happened a few times today. My X3 won't start, symptoms as follows:
  • A few days ago, tried to start it up. turned over, almost fired, then died
  • Motor turns over fine and seems to be firing on one cylinder or maybe 2
  • No code whatsoever via OBD, computer thinks the car is fine.
Battery is sufficiently charged, and there's no other symptoms of a weak battery. Just turns over and over, never quite firing well enough to start. Plugged fuel filter? Some other non-code problem?

Nothing like this has happened previously, always started right up as expected. Car has 90000 miles.
