Q: sometimes car wont start but turns over on 1996 Saturn SL2

Sometimes my car wont start, like 3 times a week. It turns over but wont start. I tried it like 10 times and then left it alone. a few hour later it started and was good for a few days. Other times when it wont start i will push start it and then it will work for a few days. Yesterday it died while i was driving it and wouldn't start again. I left it while i went to to work and after when i tried it started.
