My 2005 Jeep Liberty has had some occasional problems starting since I purchased it in 2009. The vast majority of the time it starts up just fine, but every once in awhile, it just doesn't quite want to turn over all the way. It'll be almost there, but it just doesn't want to start. It typically happens when the car is warm (i.e. has been driven for 30-45 minutes and then left to sit for 20 minutes), and when I turn the key it just doesn't start (it WANTS to, it just doesn't quite get there). Usually, if I try a few times and turn the key extra hard and maybe give it some extra gas, it will start up. Every time I have taken it to a mechanic, I've mentioned this problem, and they'll try to figure out the issue, but they are never able to get it act up. My gas mileage has taken a major nosedive over the last few months as well. I'm not sure if they're related issues, but figured I should mention it. Any ideas?

YJ - one step away from a CJ = lots of interchangeable parts.
TJ - one step away from a JK = sudden urge to go to the mall
