As with any no start issue, you will need to check for spark and fuel pressure when it won't start to know how to proceed.

2002 saturn sl won't start, turn over but won't start


If the engine fires up for a second or two with starting fluid then the fuel pump is weak.I would check the fuel pressure and if its not within the specs then replace the pump and filter.
