    Since it's an intermittent problem it's probably safe to assume there's no major mechanical reason. So the thing to check is when it won't start what is missing, most likely fuel or sparks.

    Start with fuel, next time it won't fire give it a good crank and then check at the exhaust for the smell of unburnt petrol, or remove the plugs to see if they are wet with fuel.

    I suspect your mechanic doesn't get to see it whe it won't fire or he'd have checked for the fundamentals, so he's trying to diagnose an intermittent problem when it isn't occurring, that's never easy.

    You can also check for fuel pressure at the rail when it won't fire. Just be careful in case fuel is present as it will spray out.

    If fuel is present in the cylinders then check for sparks.
