Starting issue

I have a 2006 2.3L Mazda 3, standard transmission with 160xxx km. Iíve had the car for about 6 months now, and within the first month or so it started having problems starting. I will turn the key and it will crank but not start. All of the lights turn on and it sounds as it should, however it just doesnít turn over. Iíve tested the battery and alternator and theyíre both functioning properly. The engine light is not on, and there are no codes. This doesnít happen always, just at random. Some days I have to turn the key multiple times, and it finally starts. Some days it has no problems at all. Some days it will start fine, and then struggle ten minutes later. It is now occurring more frequently, and weather doesnít seem to affect it.I have no idea where to begin with figuring out what is wrong, any Suggestions?
