When starting the engine, it sounds like the sylinoid (?) sticks after the car sits idle for more than 30 minutes-ish.

(2008 Toyota Sienna)
if I shut it down, it cranks right back with no sticking noise. Already replaced starter, Starter relay, and ignition switch.
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Its worse when absolutely cold, like overnight
How long have you had this problem? last few months

Solenoid sticks - You mean the starter is staying engaged ? .. Is the key (lock cylinder) returning to the ON position as it should after cranking engine?

IF not - lubricating lock cylinder may help.
