Check for loose or bad (dirty or rusted) wire harness connections and contacts. Maintain clean battery terminals. Check fuel pump relay or better replace with new.
If problem is intermitent is harder to find what the cause, so you have to inspect components involved one by one and make sure they are working properly. Good luck!

If the car starts and runs fine when you first start it in the morning or when its cold from sitting for a few hours after driving it but won't start if you drive it somewhere and get the car upto operating temp and then shut the car off and try to restart it with a few mins or upto a half hour basically when the car is hot then you might be looking at a bad crankshaft position sensor. A bad crankshaft position sensor can keep the car from starting mostly when its hot. If the engine control module doesn't see that signal it doesn't know the engine is running so it never sends fuel to the injectors.
