Expert:  Randall C replied 1 year ago.

Ok, one has to know if fuel or ignition or combo of both, my thought? you have a bad crank sensor, mounted in the trans bellhousing,It was and is a very common fail item. Fuel? one would wait till hard to start and then spray some carb cleaner in the air intake to see if it starts that way, if so? then we could? be looking at fule pump, I tend to lean more to crank sensor, Here is a link to this

cam sensor is bad so I replace it and run good for about 2 mile then runs ruff and shut off
