98 mercury sable wont start

i took the battery to have it checked ,they said it was ok. the car was just filled with gas and heat ,it seems to be getting gas. it is firing well. someone said something about a sensor. what you think? any ideas will be appreciatted. we jumped it twice .that didnt work. i had to jump it a week ago. just touched it and it took off. then for a week its been fine .it sits outside all the time in illinois. its been cold. thanks.

check fuel pump

You might have a bad fuel pump.To verify this the backyard mechanic way you will need to listen very close Open up the gas cap and turn key to run just short of starting listen for the pump.You should hear it.If it does run you will need more troubleshooting like fuel pressure to the rail.I am guessing you have the 3.0l engine.
How about check engine light on or off?
