MAZDA 626 DENT PROBLEM

1998 Mazda 626 • 18,100 miles

When I went to start the car the other morning, the engine cranked for more than a minute but would not start. I let it sit for a minute or so and tried again. Same thing. I tried again and no go. On the fourth try it started immediately.
I tried it again later in the day and it started right away.
Since then it's like Russian roulette. Sometimes it pops right off. Other times it takes several tries. It always starts eventually. But I no longer trust it. I'm leaving it parked until I can find time to take it to a mechanic.
Any ideas?

Start with fuel pressure test.

You will have to make time to get this problem identified or it will leave you down adding to your misery.
