    Did you solve this? I have the same problem today with my '98 Cutlass. In my case the steering wheel is not locked (tried it a dozen times), the key simply won't turn. No history of this happening.

Igniton module prabably is the problem. Without testing it when it does not start we are just guessing but usually when it acts up only when the car gets hotter it usually points to an ignition issue.
