Hi, the starter may have a hot spot in the armeture and cant make contact with the brushes inside. First lets try taking a hammer and smack the side of the starter while someone else is holding the key all the way to start and see if it shakes the contacts loose. This may sound odd, but believe it or not it works a lot of times. If it does, the starter needs replaced or it will happen again. let me know please and we can go from there
