Sounds like its going through the start sequence, turn key to start, hear the start relay engage but starter does not engage or spin.
Cycling the ignition switch and eventually starter will engage and start motor.
Wonder if the starter has a flat spot.

Yeah I suspect that also, could be a chipped tooth on the starter or flexplate. Or the starter, could just be having a problem with engaging.

Replaced the starter. Problem solved.
Open winding when starter is at high ambient heat, after cooling starter would work.
