Re: Starting problem
My friends 1997 SS basically did the same thing but ended up not starting at all. Ended up being the fuel pump. (Only 60K miles). I'm not sure on a 2000 but he cut a access hole in the rear trunk area and was able to replace the pump from inside the car. Was really not that bad if your careful. The thread on how to do it is on this site. I would probably get a fuel pressure meter and throw it on the rail and see what it reads 1st.
