Check, clean and tight correctly the battery leads. If the problem still occurs remove the electrical starter motor out from the engine, repair it (change carbon brushes, bearings, ...) and install it back in place. Then test the engine. It should cranking & start immediately. Good Luck!
The torque converter clutch circuit is built onto the tranny. You can see the plugin. You can disconnect this and will be ok, Otherwise it is expensive to fix
The crank sensor sends informaiton to car's computer telling it to give power to the motor. If the crank sensor is shot, then your car probably will turn over but won't start. Or won't always start until it is completely bad and won't start at all.

I have same problem either glow plug circuit relay or power signal from main computer faulty. Could also be bad wireing harness they are notorious for this. We put a larger battery (higher cca) in to compinsate for excessive cranking a year later were changing the starter it seems summer comes and we blow it off till its noticable again. If you fix exact problem please let me know what it was if possible. GOOD LUCK and Thanks!
