<sigh>. 

As I stated, 3 BASIC things. One could also argue that without 
proper timing, combustion will not occur, or a hundred other little 
things depending on how you prioritize them.

Being as the gentleman has driven his car, and this problem occurs 
completely at random and the engine runs perfectly fine when it does 
run, I highly doubt that he is experiencing a random and 
catastrophic loss and then subsequent recovery of compression. That 
is why I didn't suggest it as an initial troubleshooting step.

I guess everyone's "top 3" list of critical events for a self-
sustaining reaction will be different. I'm just offering from my 
personal experience.
