1999 sunfire anti theft problem

My car sometimes does not start for a period of 15-20 minutes. It will turn over but it is like no gas is getting to the engine. It will eventually start after about 15-20 minutes. I finally noticed one evening that the light in dash was blinking "anti theft". I had never noticed this before because it was always light outside when this has happened before. Once the light stopped blinking, the car started. What needs to be done to fix this? Is there a way to reset the antitheft or change a fuse or something?

I was told to reset the anti theft system u should try to start the car. When the system kills the car leave the ignition on. The anti theft light will blink then eventually stop. When the light stops flashing give the car 5 mins with the key still on. After 5 mins turn the key to the off position then try starting the car. It should be running fine after you do this
