Hi. At this point what you need to do is to get a fuel pressure gauge and install it onto the engine. Then next time it will not start you can manually see the fuel pressure. The other option is to check for power at the fuel pump when the car will not start. This will determine if the problem is the fuel pump or power not making it to pump. Can you do any of these checks and let me know?
