If I park the car overnight or go to work (6-8 hours) the car starts fine no issues.

If I head to the gym/school and come out after 1-3 hours and try to start it I have this issue shown in the video.

I took it to a mechanic and a Subaru dealership, both times the car magically went back to normal. I brought recordings and everything but they couldn't get it to happen. When I picked up the car from a shop and the dealership the car started up like normal.

It just gave me a code for a missfire in cylinder #2. I'm going to see if maybe the spark plugs are worn out and check the coilpacks as well.

The car has 46k miles I bought it with 42k. If anyone can maybe help me out on what else to check on thursday I'd appreciate it.

Could it be a leaky injector?

Plugs are cheap. How long since last set?

I was researching and I saw that it could be a possibility.

That's similar to how my car starts after the battery has been disconnected.
Only the first start after reconnecting it, but really really similar to your video.
