Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi Guys,
I have a 1989 1.6gl automatic toyota corolla.
My car does not start all the time the mechanic said the starter,alternator
battery is good.  what do you think is wrong.  It does not make any noise
when I
turn the key.  It does not happen all the time. I left the car overnight in the
garage and the car started fine this morning, i am suspecting its got to do
with the gear lever, is there anything i can check for to make sure it goes
properly into gear?
Thanks in advanced.
