ENGINE TURNS OVER BUT DOES NOT FIRE.

1997 Ford Ghia

Electrical problem
1997 Ford Ghia 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 150000 miles

I have had this problem before, car would be start first time every time for a while, then intermitantly after 2 or 3 trys it would not start at all.
I havce been told there is a chip inside the key that when placed in the ignition, if the chip is working the engine will start. If the chip is not the problem could it be a problem with the ignition system or the imobilizer.
I have try disconnecting battery for a short period of time then reconnecting it, but it has had no effect.
