Sometimes the car will start, then somedays it will not. We've replaced the starter. The battery is fully charges. What could it be?

If its cranking over and refuses to start-check for fuel and spark

Disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, cap and rotor /distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, ECM, Ignitor cam and crank sensors- Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it

The car is not cranking over. It would click. We replaced the starter. It started for 3 days, now it won't crank at all. We thought at this point it was the battery, although all the lights worked. Battery is new only 5 months old. Any idea what it could be? We did bring it to a repair shop, and it started eveytime he tried for about 2 days. Said there was nothing wrong. It ran for about a week, and now didn't start.
