I had similar problem, i think. If your car sounds like it's turning on, but then the engine just shuts off try this solution:
I would have the car in park and right when the engine turned over i would put my foot on the gas, before it shut off. See, with my problem I could still rev the engine. I reved it hard a couple of times and the rpm's starting sticking. And the problem was solved.
The mechanic just gave me a new fuel filter and spark plugs and the problem hasn't been back since.
P.S. My car had also been sitting in the rain before this happened.
