The number one suspect is your neutral safety switch (NSS). You didn't mention the mileage on the car/transmission, but regardless, the NSS controls starting. It also controls your backup lights. Make sure they are operational.
Is your shift lever firm from notch to notch or is there play in the shaft? Worn shift linkage bushings can also cause intermittent start failures. If the problem happens again, place the transmission in neutral and try starting. If it fired off, it's one or both of the above.
Is it your plan to diy this project?
