My car is intermittenly not starting. When it does, its sputtering and then sometimes just stops dead. Sometimes it doesnt start at all. Lights are on, sounds like its going to and then doesnt. Seems like the longer it sits the better chance it will start.

Was the battery recently disconnected? Will it start and stay running if you hold the gas pedal down 1/8"? Which engine do you have?
