You'll have to be a little more specific about HOW it won't start. Is the engine cranking slowly and just won't catch, like when the battery is dead? Sometimes a failing battery or weak alternator can leave you with a low charge in the battery, and it just won't be able to turn over the engine fast enough to start. If that's the case, have the electrical system checked out. If it's cranking well but just not catching, it could just be something as simple as the fuel pressure leaking down when the vehicle sits for a while. If that's the case, try turning on the keyswitch for 3 or 4 seconds to let the fuel pressure build up THEN crank the engine to start it. That particular problem is not uncommon to GM vehicles, even though some people do not consider it a real problem, just a minor annoyance.
