Check the distributor cap and rotor for loose wires or unusual wear. Check connection of plug wires from cap to plugs. Could be a hundred things causing this, but these are the most obvious. Did the engine get wet recently? If so, drying the distributor should do the trick, but other connections of critical wiring could be the cause.

you failed to say, does crank, when it don't start?
and btw, the fuel pump on most cars only run cranking or running
some run for 3 seconds, key on, but you'd miss that fact. using
only one person.
the key word here is crank, does it crank as full speed, via the cranking starter motor. that is the engine cranks spins fast.
on this car it will spin min 250 RPM, cranking, and uses large
battery current , so on diesels it takes a very strong battery to start
and working glow plugs.

Antitheft failure can cause a "no start" situation. Look for a light in the dash that says security or antitheft. If you see that light, go to this link
