you need to replace the starter contacts, you will need to remove the starter and in the starter there are "contacts" that wear out over time and will need to be replaced im sure if you google it there will be better repair tips on this
The starter is located partially underneath the engeine in the center rear , right about at the midpoint of the cylanders anout 6- 12 down , its mostly hidden be the engiene itself, but you can see it by leaning over the engiene and peering down the opening, an easier way would be looking at the cap for your oil going right about 6 inches and looking down, another problem I've had with my corolla which i thought was the starter ended up being the erosion of the terimnals on the battery cables, the positive terminal is attached to a fusebox, connect by a small terminal, which can erode, you can fix that issue by rigging the battery with a piece of metal to conduct and a replament terminal on the battery.
pull the 4 plugs out on the top of the engine and get an extinsion and spark plug remover from an automotive shop all it takes is to pull it out and replace it with a new spark plug very easy and it might take 10 min. to do
