Im going to be buying this car soon and the only problem is that it does not start all the time. When i went to look at it it wouldnt start so we compression started it and it ran fine, then we shut hte car off after a 15 minute test drive and then it started up just fine. The battery is holding a charge so i dont think its the alternator....any idea of what it could be?

bad ignition switch, faulty starter solenoid, bad fuel pump relay, bad ground, faulty alternator, loose connection in the starter circuit. Take your pic and check em all.
