Sometimes it can be a corrosion problem with the cables or connections. How do the cables look at the battery terminals.Clean and tight?I had a starter doing the same thing once. About a inch of cable was corroded at the positive terminal.Cut it off and replaced the terminal.Worked great since.

I had a very similar issue. Mine was corroded on the negative side tho. It had the same symptoms your car is having.

Also check the block ground, had those loosen in the pass and cause the same problem!
