Car Won't Completely Turn Over

So my car broke down on the interstate. I'm trying to start it but it just won't start. I turn the key and I hear the typical sound that you hear just before the engine starts. You know, that whirring sound of the starting to turn. But that's as far as it gets. It won't finish turning over. Could it be my fuel injector or something like that? 09 cobalt lt 2.2 with over 100,000 miles on it.

So it just spins and spins but never fires? Does it sputter at all?

No sputtering. It spins like a champ until I stop trying. Strange part is, after I stop trying to start it, if I immediately try again, absolutely NOTHING happens. I have to let it sit for a few minutes before it'll try starting up again.
