Sounds like more of a connection issue somewhere rather than a bad starter.

I had the EXACT same problem. I can almost guarantee that your connections on your starter are loose, reach up there and check to see if they wiggle at all, if so take the leads off and tighten the post on the starter, just be careful not to tighten to much or you will break the plastic cap on the solenoid....been there done that!
