you might have the starte to close and have to shim the starter ,usally they give them with the starter,if it still does it you have worn teeth on the flywheel or the flywheel is warped

speedo inner cable sticking in the outer,take the head out and then pull the inner cable out clean it with an oily rag with a bit of gas on then oil it as you put it back in the outer casing

It sounds like the one way rollers in the starter gear are not holding. The fix is to rebuld the starter, or just replace it. alldatadiy.com will sell you all the information you need on that car for $16.95 a year.

Also check to see if there is power in the start wire form the ignition switch, the wire is a white wire with pink stripe, most likely not a common problem, but still something that could go wrong. this wire will feed the starter relay under the hood...

An ignition switch probably isn't the problem, because the vehicle probably wouldn't shut off if the switch were the problem. When you turn your car off the battery is not being drained any longer from the switch unless the vehicle is unable to shut down.
The other possibility that will definately cause a battery to lose juice while not running is a faulty starter sellinoid. When these sellinoid's, (may not be spelled correctly, sorry about that) are bad, the motor is turned off but the battery is still drawing current, but the engine is not running to allow the battery to recharge.
It could also be a bad battery. Check your battery cylinders by removing the plastic covering and checking the water level in the cells. Dry cells in a battery will not allow a jump.
