Acura Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello I will help you with your question,
Is this a manual or automatic transmission?
You say you roll it and it will crank normally then? How far? three feet?
The movement probably jarred the starter to a position where the contacts inside now make contact and it will crank again.
This is a sign the starter motor needs to be replaced, eventually it will just quit for good
Please let me know how I can help you with this
I have no faith in Autozone parts, gave up using them years ago as I had to do the job over too many times.
You should be able to put a 12 volt testlight on the small wire to the starter, if it shows 12 volts when you turn the key, your battery is charged and the cables are clean and tight then the starter is the problem.
If you do not get 12 volts at the starter wire then there is a neutral/park switch that might be the problem, shift to neutral and see if it will crank there.
Last there is a starter relay that may be failing, jumping the relay pin sockets (larger copper colored pair) with a heavy paperclip will send power to the starter and cause it to run.. You will need to make sure it is being sent the signal from your key switch and if it is then you replace the relay.
Do you have an aftermarket alarm installed?

I can't see any way the O2 replacement would have anything to do with it not cranking.
Why was the starter replaced? Same or similar problems?
Maybe the root cause was a poor connection that has now shown up as this intermittant? Takes just one time of catching it when it does not crank to see if you have power to the starter or not on the small wire with the key in start position.
Let me know if you can do the testing I outlined above
