My Sentra will not start good battery. The car does not turn over, I had starter tested and they said it is good. What next any ideas?

Car will start fine almost all the time. Occasionally car will try to turn over, but will not start. I will need to hold down the gas pedal to the floor, crank engine and then pump gas pedal and the car will catch and start. Can anyone help me with this issue?

I hope someone can help me.
My 06 sentra started acting up a couple weeks ago. When it is cold (first thing in the morning) it is difficult to start. Sometimes taking multiple tries and up to ten minutes.
I can usually get it started and once I get it going - it runs just fine. I can usually get it started after work within two tries (a lot of times one try). Again it runs beautifully once it gets started.
If I get home on time (before 6PM) and dont start it again until morning its difficult to start. I have noticed that when I get home late and there is less time between starts, it was ok to start in the morning.
My mechanic neighbor was nice enough to clean the throttle body for me and other parts and it seemed to start fine once he did that. But once we turned it off it would not start again. then it did start later.
We are very confused. He is going to check it with his computer tomorrow - but we were wondering if anyone has had this issue or has any ideas on what could be going on. Please help.

Hi, I have a 2004 manual spec r and I have experienced over a year a very tempermental attitude, the car will "shut off" in mid stride... the battery is fine the radio will even keep playing but theres no engine work and just a ride till my brake pressure evens out and hopefully i stop in time. it also will idle low and shut off sometimes when im trying warm up the car. its has truoble passing emissions as the engine "check me" light will periodically turn on and off. i rountinely check fluids, change oil and sparks and spark wires. Ive also had vaccumed out the air filter to rid debris. I found that after replacing the alternator (which is still under warrenty and i plan on replacing again anyway), using a higher octane gas and starting/running the car for 10 mins before traveling has decreased the frequency of shut downs...im suspecting the fuel pump or lines leading into engine where it ignites is my next guess...there is defnately no gas or fluid leaks.. thanks to everyone else posting about this car, i see there is a recall part and im gonna get on that and also look into other suggestions. have a excellent day!
