So the starter has something worn, like brushes, bearings, armature out of round. Plus you could have voltage/amperage issues due to bad power and ground cables, tired battery. Engine could also have a crankshaft problem, may not be absolutely straight and will bind in the bearings when warmed up.

Look for an aftermarket gear reduction starter for your car.
