I am not sure what the third clutch pressure switch is I presume it was a code stored for an automatic transmission problem , it will not cause a no start condition. If the car will not restart immediately after being driven but will start after it has sat for a while it would sound like a sensor is heating up, fails and when it cools down allows the car to restart but it is most likely that would set a code. You need to determine if the engine is loosing fuel or spark. Crank over the engine with one ignition coil removed and a spark plug in the coil tower and held to ground see if it has spark. Next crank over the engine and crack open the fuel line at the fuel pressure rail and see if you have fuel delivery. After that you would need to check for triggering of the fuel injector to see if the computer is actually firing the fuel injector. Intermittent problems are often hard ot find but if this is happening each time you drive the car it should be simple to find out what is causing this.
