WON'T START

1994 Ford Ranger

Engine Mechanical problem
1994 Ford Ranger 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles

I drive approx 20 miles or so and sometimes it won't start. I have to wait from 15 minutes to an hour - then it will start. It will go a month fine and then start doing it again. My mechanic has seen it 4 times - has replaced starter, batter and relays. He's stumped.
