Welcome to the forum. How long since a tune-up? Use a gage and check fuel pressure. Any codes? Also check for a vacuum leak.

Intermittent problems can be hard to track-down. The pcm may monitor the voltage on the fuel pump circuit, so if there is no voltage when there should be, it may set a code. I don't recall if the cel comes on, but, I have seen the the code on other models. You have an oil pressure switch in the fuel pump circuit, once you crank it enough to bring up oil pressure, the switch closes and the pump gets voltage.

Vacuum leaks can open or close with temp changes.
