Car starting problem

When i turn the key, sometimes it just cranks for a few moments then starts. other times it keeps cranking but wont start and i have to turn the key back and try again before it starts. Also, sometimes i turn the key, it starts cranking, i let off the key but it keeps on cranking (sometimes starting, other times not.)
i went to dealer and they said no recalls and nothing was wrong with it. I replaced the battery and it seemed to help for a little while but now its acting up again.

Anyone else have this happen to them? or know what is causing it to do this?

This car is an 2005 cobalt ls.

maybe a bad starter, maybe just not as powerful as it once was.

I was beat by RKRamos.
