The car will work fine for a couple of days and then it won't start. The next day it will just crank right up

As Dan said if the Service Engine Soon/Check Engine light is on a scantool is needed to retrieve trouble codes stored in the computer in your car. But even if the light is not on a professional grade scan tool allows key engine sensor data to be analyzed right off the scan tool without having to do intrusive testing at each sensor.

Really best retrieve the check engine codes. That will lead you to the problem.

Temp sensors might be something to look into.
