and I turn on the car it feels like the starter sticks
and the motor is overworking itself I have to shut it
of and back on three time for it to start normal it
only happens when I put gas in my car

Starter is staying engaged... the solenoid on the starter has probably worn, how many miles on the vehicle? I suggest changing the starter motor. Have a voltage drop test performed on the starter circuit fast and easy just need a multimeter. Regards Oh, who knows the slight angle from having fuel in the tank might be enough to effect the starter too!
