I suggest that you take the starter motor to an accredited auto electrician as it indicates a dry joint problem in the armature bars
the fix is
the bars can be re-soldered
or My preference -- a new armature

SOURCE: My car is barely starting
Check all your connections, make sure they are all clean & tight. Do you have a multimeter available for a voltage check at battery, before & after starting?

there might be a problem in your fuel line. try buying a can of sea foam [Red and white bottle.Available at any auto place. Around $9]. pouring about half in the tank and the other half thru a line in your brake booster or another vacuum line. the line will be under the hood to the very top right. it should be black, round, and two lines coming out of it. do this with the car running so maybe have someone else hold the gas to about 1500 RPM. Slowly drip the sea foam in until it almost dies then put your thumb on the line to keep it running. keep doing that until the can is almost or fully empty. Let the car sit for about 5 mionutes then start the car and keep the RPMs to about 2 grand. There will be smoke fromt the exhaust SO DONT WORRY! Just keep on the gas until the smokes clears. If that doesnt help let me know!

Check tightness of the clamps on battery & make sure the earth cable is tight from battery to engine, also check tightness of nut holding the cable 2 starter motor if all ok there its most probably the solenoid on top of starter motor replace this with new all will b ok.
