If you drive it a short or long distance makes no difference it will not crank over enough to start. If you let it sit for 20 minutes it starts fine. I replaced the battery and the alternator is fine. I think it might be the starter or the starter relay? What do you think?

Do you mean the starter is turning slowly?

Yes the starter turns slowly. But not all the time.

I would start by making sure all battery terminals are clean, tight, and not damaged. If they are good, check for power to the starter when this happens. You should have 12v. If you don't, then there is a wiring problem. If all checks good, chances are the starter is bad. You have it checked at most parts stores for free.

Maybe the starter is one that can be shimmed, (may be too close to the flywheel) Do the other tests 1st

Look this over too
