Did they figure out if you are loosing fuel or spark when it fails to start up ? You would need to know which to proceed.

Once you have the car started do you get rough idling or the needle of the tachometer does not stay in one spot? You may need to inspect the Idle Air Control valve if that is the case. It may need cleaning or you may have to replace it. It is located at the intake manifold.
Below is a sample picture but the prices vary.
I would recommend to have a scanner connected to the car to check if there are error saved in the computer. Some shops would let you borrow them. You may also inspect the engine for loose vacuum hoses and wires.

does your temp gage seem off does it go like up to the h because if it does you could try unpluging your upper coolent sensor because that could cause that because it is telling you computer to run in closed loop when it should be running in open loop

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
