The starter works intermittently. Is the starter bad, I did a battery test and is good?

If the battery was tested by a machine which includes a load test and was rated good then it may be the starter. A pro can test to see how many amps it is drawing to figure that out if it draws to many amps then it will need replacing or auto parts can test there. However you have to pull the intake manifold off to reach it. It may have aflat spot on armature or solenoid is going bad causing problem.
