Issue / Question:
This camaro has an intermittent starting issue. Hot or cold, it doesn’t matter. It will always turn over, but not always start. No codes are present, and the fuel pump does actuate during the no-start situations. There are no performance issues when the car does start. Is it a bad crank position sensor? Coil packs? Is the fuel pump starting to go?

Try this, cycle the key to on without cranking the motor for 5 seconds then turn the key off. Do this 5 to 7 times before cranking the engine. If it starts right up, there’s a good chance the residual fuel in the system has bled back into the tank and cycling the key is allowing the fuel pump to re-prime the fuel system. If it starts right up it will most likely take a new fuel pump module to fix your problem.
