have you tried to bleed the air from the fuel filter housing.  loosen the bleed screw and pump the primer until fuel comes out.  then close the screw and pump until its tight.  have someone crank it while you continue to pump the primer.  these are common for air intrusion into the filter causing the pump to suck air.

Crank, no startIn the morning after sitting had the problem. Turn key on and of a few time started and runs. Park and restarts fine.

I guess that is what turn the key off and on did.
Chevy Mechanic: jeffreyg31,
 replied 1 year ago

next time it doesnt start, follow my above instructions.  if it fires right up then you will need to replace the fuel filter housing.
