Car periodically wont start

Asked by Jul 06, 2019 at 04:50 PM about the 2012 Chevrolet Malibu

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

For the past 3 months, when I go to start my car, it won't
catch.  There is no clicking noise, car just doesnt want to
catch and continue to run.  I let it sit for a while and then it
starts. Have taken to mechanic and he says that the car
isn't throwing any codes.  Car runs quietly.  Today, I drove it
about 10 miles and parked to get lunch for about an hour,
came out to leave and car wouldnt starr. Tried it a few
times, wouldnt catch.  Last time, it caught but as it was
running, the car was shaking.  I cite it off, then tried again,
this time wouldnt catch.  I also notice that when going from
2 to 3 RPMS when picking up speed, it delays a bit but does
change gears but jerks a bit.  Any suggestions?
