Engine Mechanical problem
1992 Lexus SC 300 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 117000 miles

I turn the key, lights come on but engine doesn't start. Sometimes I need to turn it 2 - 4 times before the engine will start. Seems to happen sporadically, perhaps more so on a cold engine. I've tried jiggling the steering wheel and making sure the gear shift is securely in park. Sometimes I push the shift lock override button. It seems to start after that but that could be coincidental because I don't usually push it until I've already tried everything else.
