It can be a component on it's way out or a wiring issue most likely. Intermittants can be a nightmare to diagnose. The key is to troubleshoot when the no start is present.
Just yesterday we had one that started out like yours, but when we got it, it barley cranked. The first thing was to get it cranking, battery went bad. Then it cranked and started. After a few tries, we were able to experience the no start. We couldn't hear the fuel pump run. Turns out the connector to the pump pump was corrodeed.
If that was your original fuel filter, then I wouldn't be surprized if the pump has been compromised.
