The car seems to have random problems. Car won't turn over or make any noise when trying to start, all light on dash are lit, wait 30 minutes and it starts right up. Brought it home let it sit for an hour and it won't start but engine turns over. Wait 10 minutes and it starts right up.

Thank you for the reply! This all happened yesterday. Drove car to the store and turned it off. 10 minutes later tried to start the car. The dash lights turn on but that was it not even a click from under the hood. Let it sit for 20 minutes or so and tried to start it again and it started right up. Drove it home turned it off waited 5 minutes and it started fine. Let it sit for about an hour and tried to start it this time it cranked like it was about to start but wouldn't start. Acted like it was flooded. Opened the hood to be sure all wires were attached, spark plugs. Tried to start it again and it started right up.

Left it over night and this morning it started right up.
It has a 3.0L V6.
