Occasional staring problem 98 SL500

Cranks fine but will not start intermittently. Usually happens first thing in morning, but after 10-20 minutes it fires and runs fine. Took it to MB and they could find no codes and they had no problem starting it all day. Fuel PSI was in spec. So..... drove it home and went to drive it hour later, no start. This am after 20 min between attempts to start.... finally started and runs smooth as silicon. Anybody have any ideas i.e. CPS? O2 sensor?
Thanks for any help.
