Starting car has problems

I am having trouble starting my car. It sometimes will start the first time but tends to take 4 to 6 cranks sometimes as well to start. Once car is started it runs like a champ. Doesn't die on me or stall out. I change currently spark plugs ignition coils and even cleaned out the throttle body cause I thought could have been a problem too. I'm so confused what it is. It does sound like it doesn't get like a spark or something when it cranks but doesn't start. I'm so dumb founded on this one cause everything that I know to check seems to be okay. I don't no what could cause this. Car does have 180,000 miles on it though PLEASE SOME PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!

sams_on_top, You have already change spark plugs and coil. Perhaps it is just a sluggish/weak battery have it tested and there may also be a stored trouble code (lazy sensor)even if he engine light is not on. Some of the auto parts suppliers offer free battery testing and code reading like Pepboys, Nappa, Advanced auto parts,etc and some of the guys are very knowledgeable and may have seen the issue often and put you on the right track. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

Check the cylinder compression, if it's not able to squeeze the fuel/air mixture enough, it won't be able to light it. You need 100psi minimum to support combustion. Your engine could be losing compression because the valve need adjusting and/or the piston rings are getting worn out.
