1999 Mercury Mystique • 6 cylinder FWD Manual • 99,000 miles

I have a 1999 Mercury Mystique, 5 speed manual, V-6.
The car starts fine for weeks or even months, and then won't start. If the car is bump started, it runs fine again for an unspecified amount of time. Then it won't start again. The weather does not seem to be a factor. I have a new battery and starter. I never know when I get in to go somewhere if it will start. Help. Thanks.
