This is just one possibility, but I'd say when you have starting issues, always check the simplest thing first; like, how's the voltage on your battery? That's an easy free test most auto parts stores will come out and check the voltage of your battery & also make sure the ALTERNATOR is working right. If the batt is low, it won't want to start easily. After that, could be the starter. Batteries start to go bad in the 5-7 year range, typically, so this could well be the problem. Get it fixed before you burn up the alternator--trust me, you don't want to have to take that alternator out, it's a Bi**h.
