That sounds like it might be a fuel delivery problem. Change the fuel filter and if you can check the fuel pressure. When the car won't start can you hear the fuel pump running in the gas tank? If not you may need a new fuel pump.

Is the battery any good ? for under $20** you can get a multitester worth it's weight in gold , does it turn over ? Do the headlights come on ? Motor size ? If it turns over is there spark from the coil stem .? It could be something very simple . When you hit the key to . " .key on ,engine off" you should hear the fuel pump come on (turn off the radio so you can hear it) , don't assume anything ,.

All electrical systems seem to be working perfectly
