SOURCE: starter stays engaged
The starter relay on the fender is the most common cause of this condition. ,It is on passenger side feder in the engine compartment, it is round and the positive cable of the battery goes to it,

SOURCE: Starter will not engage when
Check your starter solenoid (usually near battery). It's a very cheap part to replace, so if it's not the problem, you aren't out too much money. It you don't know what a solenoid is, I'll fill you in so it'll make a little more sense to replace it. A solenoid is an electromagnet that bridges two high-amperage connections to complete a circuit. When you turn the key to Start, it doesn't make a direct connection with the starter, but rather it turns on the electromagnet in your solenoid to complete the circuit of another connection which makes the starter turn. I had the same problem last year. The first thing I replaced was the solenoid and that ended up being my problem.

Testimonial: "Good quick answer to my question. Will follow suggestion."
What the dealer told you sounds strange but the only thing I can think of that might do that is if the flex plate (flywheel) was put in backwards, if it has an off-set (like a wheel and tire assembly) it may be too close to the starter gear. BUT that still does not tell me why it wasn't doing it all the time. It is weird problems like yours that make me wish I could go there and actually see it.I hope after the shop finishes it works out well!!!

The starter solenoid is failing. Sooner or later the starter will probably not disengage after you turn the key off. Then you'll have to disconnect the battery in a hurry. It's no fun. And at that point the whole starter will probably have to be replaced. Depending on how long it takes you to unhook the battery. Trust me. That is no way to start your day. It's really bad for your blood pressure. Good Luck.
