Check your wires, sparks, fuel filter, O2 sensor. Had similar problems and now waiting for O2 sensor.

another cause can be the fuel pressure regulator, especially if you have to crank more than once.

sometimes on older cars you have to pump the fuel pedal a couple of times before you try to start the car
