Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. Have you checked fuel pressure? What about codes in the computer? This sounds like a fuel delivery issue. I would start by checking fuel pressure when this no start condition occurs. You might just have a bad or weak fuel pump. It should be between 50 and 60 psi with the key on and cranking. If this checks out OK, then I would suspect a bad engine coolant temp sensor, TPS sensor or possibly a bad MAP sensor as the computer uses these sensors for fuel control.
