Actually it would be nice if computers could tell you everything you needed to know about what is problem! Like even talkng! HAL! Did you say injectors are firing? Maybe squirt some gas in intake and see if it starts?

You could pull plugs and see what they look like? Wet fouled plugs wont fire.

Ya that's not the issue because it will run great for a week or two then just not start one day then run again for a day or two

Anti theft may shut injectors down. You could noid light to test. They may loan/rent them at auto parts chains.
