Have you tried leaving the shiftier alone in neutral and squeezing the clutch harder to the floor while turning the key? is there anything under the clutch pedal itself like doubled up floor mats?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I was playing with that already , there's nothing under the clutch , when holding key in start position I was pressing and releasing the clutch multiple times and nothingOnly thing that work is to move the car a bit in the gear and then try again

Is it a ticking noise that comes from the engine itself when running? Or is it from another component such as the purge solenoid?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Sometimes when cruising also but that's might not to be cinexctwd ti my starting issue
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
If that would be a bad starter pushing a car a. Bit wouldn't halo right ?
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 8 months ago.

The purge solenoid is part of the evaporative emissions system and would tick while running.

Does the noise coming from the engine itself or another component?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Can't tell
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 8 months ago.

Do you hear any noise from the engine compartment when turning the key to the crank position when it will not crank?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Just one click from the starter I think
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Or some electrical one tick
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Then I need to push a car in a gear just a bit and then I can start it
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 8 months ago.

If there is a single click from the starter but the engine does not crank then you need to voltage drop test the starter positive cable and engine ground at the time it will not crank and if ok then the starter can be condemned.
