When starting my 98 sunfire, a few times a week the starter will turn over a
for a second or two, stop for a quarter second, and then continue turning
and start the car.
When the starter stops for that quarter second there is no audible sound
within the car (no clicking, buzzing, etc).
I have not seen this symptom before, is it common?
I am guessing that the starter motor is seizing up causing the starter motor
to fail temporarily but this is only a guess...
