Question: My truck wont start 50% of the time.

Hi, I have a 2000 chevy s10 with a 2.2L 4 cyl engine and about 50% of the time when i go to start it i will turn the key and I can hear the fuel pump kicking on but it wont even attempt to start. After about 10 minutes of waiting it will eventually crank. I can sometimes put it in nuetral and crank it but this doesnt always work. I also have code P0141 which is the heater 02 censor malfunction. Is this what is causing it? If not what is?
