Fatcat,You didnt mention what engine you have.
When the no start occurs, try holding the gas pedal all the way to the floor, hold it there and try starting the car.
If it still does not attempt to start, disconnect (1) spark plug wire at the coil and have someone try to start the car, you should see and here a "spark" jump and snap.
If spark is present, air inlet to throttle body or carburetor and check for presence of fuel.
Let me know what you find.

93 cutlass runs very bad untill i unplug any sensor on the engine then it runs better but when it warms up sometimes it wont start till it cools down

there may be a short to ground somewhere and the pcm readings are off the sounds like the ecu/pcm is bugging out.
