Fire, then no fire

Have a dilemma here and wondering if members have experienced such. Went to start the GTA last weekend as I do every weekend and it fired off at the first turn of the key, then nothing. Engine would turn over and over, but no fire. Funny thing is I would come back a half hour later and it would fire off again at the first turn of the key, and then nothing. It would crank and crank with no fire. Repeated this process all day, but no start. Things I checked.

1.) Fuel shoots out the schrader valve on fuel rail. I hear fuel pump when ignition is turned on.

2.) Checked for voltage at the coil with ignition switch on. Measured 13.6 volts.

Any suggestions out there will be greatly appreciated.
