Question about 1999 Chevrolet Astro
I have had the same problem in trying to start my van. I noticed that it only did this in the rain or high humidity day. In tearing apart my van to find a solution, I had noticed that when trying to start the van, the ignition coil was arcing onto the mount holding it in place. I only noticed this due to the fact that by now, it was dark. After changing the coil, I never ran into this problem again.
I do hope this helps.

I have the same problem, I replaced the fuel pump. Did NOT solve it. i was told that it is a computer problem. The computer is not sending electric to the fuel pump, by cranking it several times the oil pressure builds up and will over ride the computer and send power to the fuel pump. This is a common problem on these asrto vans.

change your plug wires. moisture seeps in over night like dew on the grass in the morning.when the engine warms up, the wires dry out. There's also a relay that runs the fuel pump to pressurize the fuel system when the key is first turned on. it only runs for about 2 seconds when the key is first turned on. after the engine starts, the fuel pump get it's power through the oil pressure switch. this is done in case of an accident and the engine stalls, the oil pressure drops and shut off the fuel flow. if this relay fails, you have to crank the engine until it can build enough oil pressur to power the fuel pump through the oil pressure switch. I'd go with the wires first. The relay would probably make it happen all the time, not just in the morning.

I would have fuel pump/injectors checked
