Yes you are right it is a bad starter,heats up then you have no crank,and the tap trick you done confirm,s it all so.

If a tap on the starter makes it start it is likely a bad starter. Check the electrical cable connections to make sure that is not the problem before replacing the starter. The connections should be clean, free of corrosion and tight.
