Okay lets get the turns over word right as many mistake this .

Does the engine crank over but at times will not start the engine .

OR the engine fails to crank over intermittently.

Any Warning lights ON when the engine is running like check engine light.

Okay good thank you Michael.

Possible bad starter motor relay , Starter motor ,Starter wiring circuit problem.

Evan a bad battery connection will cause this .

Even though the battery was checked tested etc, remove and clean the battery posts and clamps contact area .

may look clean but still cause you this issue .

Next also know is a faulty ignition switch ,electrical side not the key itself .

When trying to start when it does nothing turn the key a little harder to start position .

If you have a push start system this will not be your problem you will need to get hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and check for malfunction codes .
