It sounds like either the starter is going bad or the starter relay. When this happens, I need you to check something. Have a helper turn the key to the start position while you check for voltage to the smaller wire on the starter. If you are getting 12+ volts to it and the starter doesn't work, replace the starter. If there is no power, replace the starter relay.

Let me know what you find.
