Question ML320 failed to run after startup

Greetings All,

First attempt to turn on the engine of my ML320 2000 model, it turned over but fails to run. If I turned off the engine and try starting it one more time, the car runs fine.

It has become a routine to turn off and turn on in order to get the car to run.

BTW, the Crankshaft Positioning Sensor was replaced about a year ago after I had another startup problem. Also, Auto Zone confirmed the car battery is fine.

Any suggestions to help understand the cause and how to remedy the problem will be appreciated.

Thanks for your anticipated response.
