CAR WON'T START, TURNS OVER BUT WON

1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass

Engine Mechanical problem
1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 123000 miles

I have a 87 Olds cutlass cierra GT with a 3.8 liter engine, auto trans. On occasion it won't start, it turns over no problem, but woon't fire and there is no fuel being delivered because it's not getting flooded. Only know this because it was hooked up to a scanner when we happened to catch it acting up. It will do the " not start" bit for 5 -30 min, then come back and it fires off first time, and it could be months between problems.
I have put a new crank sensor in it, fuel pump, filter. The only thing I haven't replaced is the computer. I have talked to one other person who had a vehicle that did the same thing, but they never found the trouble either.

any ideas on what it could be?
