Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
Did any warning lights come on at all, has the vehicle been scanned for trouble codes?

No warning lights and AA couldn't get a reading
Did you replace one injector or all?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Had all 4 replaced
Ok the issue that you are having and the fact that the vehicle will start again after it sits is consistent with the gear of the starter motor minding up and knocking against the flywheel. The starter would need to be checked as a first step.
