this is usually an indication that the starter solenoid and/or starter is getting ready to die.
You may know this or not but bear with me in a short explanation of the solenoid/starter operation.
The starter uses a large amount of current. The ignition key cannot switch that large current so we use a starter solenoid (actually just a relay). When you turn the key to start the engine. the key applies 12 volts to the starter solenoid which closes the relay and applies 12 volts (at high current) to the starter motor, which engages the flywheel of the engine and cranks the motor to start it. Since the starter uses so much current it is a limited life item, especially on a car that is older.
This condition you have right now will in all likelihood get worse.
Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS please give me a rating Thks
