    Check the oil level first, if it is low you have a leak somewhere. If the oil is low the engine will hard to start for it takes time to lubricate the moving parts inside the engine. You have to check for a leaking gasket, and check your Air filter. A clogged Filter could cause the problem, clean the filter.

    Sounds like the starter. Have a friend turn the key while you tap the starter, if it starts, then you know the sarter is the problem.

    I have the Same Exact Car, with the Same Exact problem (sometimes). I actually put in a new starter and still have theat problem; not often, but still.....not cool. I actually found that putting my car into Neutral and "rolling It" just a few inches; puts "whatever it is" back into the "Sweet Spot"!! Lol!
