Check the connections at the starter and make sure they are clean and that you have no loose connections. If your starter is working sporadically it may be a sign it's going on the fritz. If so you'll need to purchase a new starter. But check the connections first and go from there.

Does it sound like the starter is dragging, if so it could possibly be the one-way starter clutch going out.
