Question about 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis
It sounds like you have lost a tooth from the edge of the fly wheel. Remove the starter motor and check its pinion drive gear for integrity. Whilst the motor is off ease the flywheel round by using a large screw driver to lever it one tooth at a time. If all teeth are intact and pinion gear is OK then it could be either the contact brushes or the armature contact area in the starter motor that have become worn. If brushes just replace them. If armature - replace the motor.
