Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many possible causes for a no start issue, especially depending on what it's actually doing. The problem could be with the fuel system, it could be electrical, a failed started, fuel quality, a security issue, etc.

What happens when trying to start the engine?

Can you elaborate on what you mean by 'P-stand'?

Customer: replied 23 days ago.
P stand stands for Park. When the shifter is placed in Park mode. Sometimes, the engine starts w no problem, other times it doesn't. When it does not, the shifter barely moves very difficult out of park to neutral.

What happens when trying to start the engine?

Customer: replied 23 days ago.
Upon turning the ignition key, you hear a single loud click. The engine doesn't even try to turn over. The battery has been checked and is adequately charged.

If you get a single loud click then you almost surely have a bad starter. The starter's positive feed, engine ground, and starter solenoid driver need to be tested and if ok then the starter can be condemned.
