I have a 2003 Honda Element with 200k+ miles. I have an ignition problem where often it takes several tries to start the engine. I turn the key and get nothing even though I have plenty of battery. After several tries, it finally starts. Just recently it won't start at all. The engine turns over, but it won't catch. I have spark and gas, but maybe not enough gas. Where might the problem be?

Fuel pump might be failing, check for fuel pressure. Was it ever changed?
