I haven't tried the relay yet. I do have new plugs and wires.

I found away around the problem. When I get into the car I turn the key to on...I don't attempt to start the car, just turn the ignition to on. I wait about two seconds and then turn the key to the accessory position and wait another second or two and then start the car......starts every time...go figure.

If you are having to "prime the fuel system" which is what you are doing when turning on the key, and turning it off and then starting the car.
you have a fuel system issue. It was mentioned here earlier......either the fuel pressure regulator or the fuel pump......if it were a leaking injector it would stumble and run rough when it did get started...........same thing with a leaking fuel pressure regulator.

And dont forget the upper plenium will burn through inside the intake and leak coolant into the engine.....starts out as a stumble after sitting a while.
Then it will either hydrolock the engine or die while driving, then hydrolock the engine
