Why won't a 1994 Oldsmobile silhoutte start until after the steering wheel has been tilted a couple of times?

I have the same car. Mine doesn't start sometimes. It does not start after I have driven for ten minutes or so and stopped and turned off the engine for about 25 minutes. It will start immediately after it is turned off or ten minutes later, but not 30 minutes later. I have to wait about an hour or longer for it to start again. If I turn off the engine, then run back to the car every ten or fifteen minutes to start it, it is fine. I also think it will start if I turn on the ignition for 30 seconds or so before I crank it.
