    It sounds like your starter is going out.

    If it's cranking over but not starting, then it's def not the starter. I think you have a fuel pump going bad. Have you ever replaced the fuel filter? The only way to find out is to have a fuel pump gauge on it while cranking. It should read at least 50 psi. The only other possibility would be spark. You could have an intermittent prob with lack of spark. Check all your grounds. These cars are famous for corrosion around some of the MANY grounding locations.

    I assume you are talking about a fuel injected LS engine, in which case that fuel pressure should be regulated to 58 psi.
