The starter engages, turns the motor and the motor tries to start. This happens 6-8 times then the motors starts and runs with no problem. This happens most when the engine is cold and ambient temp is 60 or below. I can then drive the car with no problem. There is never any check engine light and all of the equipment (heater, wipers etc.) runs with no problem. I don't want to wear out my starter on this problem.
