This is a problem i had and thought I would let you know the symptoms and cure.
The symptoms where that the car would start when cold and it would run fine. But if I drove it then stopped for about 10 minutes it would refuse to start.
If i left it for about 30 minutes it would start again.
Finally tracked the problem to the Crank Angle Sensor which would fail at a certain temperature but would be fine when cold and when hot.
Found with the help of freeze spray and the error codes.

Very common. They get worse and worse really quickly. One day it wont start warm, the next it will just stall on you midway during a drive. Common error code is 47, although a few others can also come up for the same thing.

About $85 for the replacement part from GMH, and about $40 or $50 for them to fit it, just had mine done about 3 months ago, and it has been fine ever since. Seems to be a lot of them failing at the moment, numerous threads with people that have the same issue.
