I have a 1996 Chevy express van that will not start sometimes. I will try to start the van and it will not start. However, hours or a day later the van will start with no problem. Once the van is started it will stop, start, and run good all day. What would cause the van to have intermitten starts like this?

That will not start sometimes.

Next time it refuses to start don't wait do below immediately

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors- Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it
