Rod,

" the car did not start (starter not engaging) until the third try. After it started, I could not reproduce this problem. Any ideas..."

The starter motor spun but did not engage? If you didn't move the car at all between attemps it is probably the starter solenoid is sticking. This is probably the most likely.

If you moved the car slightly in gear then got it to engage you might have a chipped tooth on your flywheel.

Shawn
