Hello, my name is***** is a common symptom caused by a failed starter. To know for sure you will want to verify there is at least 11v on both wires going to starter during problem while trying to start. If voltage is good going to starter but starter isn't turning then replace the starter. This would be around $300 to have done at a shop, here are replacement instructions. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
