    You need to know what you don't have when it won't start. Like spark, fuel and compression. I suspect you have a bad ignition module. MAKE THE BASIC OBSERVATIONS FIRST.

    This sounds like electrical signals,either the module or the coil is weak after being driven and warmed up. Pull a plug wire and insert a screw driver down into the plug wire hold the driver shaft just over a 1/4 in. from a good ground if the spark looks weak then it may be the signal to fire or the coil pack. Actually you wont see many coils fail. More modules fail than coils!!

    I got my olds from a friend, and the same thing started to happen to it. It turned out to be the silo-nod to the trany it's on the top of it not inside, Yep it will do the same as bad wire/plug/electronics/fuel system... it sits on top of the trany, not hard to fix. if you find a trany shop (that you can trust) if will only cost $200 I went with a new filter and fluid and it was a total $285 at the shop. next time I will do it myself, and will save around $130 boy the price of labor, good luck to all.
