At times the engine will start and run rough then die and then crank and no start, leave vehicle and let sit then will start and run great, not every morning yet not knowing if it will start is a bit nerve wrecking, any help is great, no dtc's stored, now in shop starting every time

    possible fuel delivery issue. have fuel pressure test. change fuel filter. clean fuel system with ethanol treatment to fuel. get diagnostic run to find any other issues you need to be aware of.
    also possible ignition issue.
