Inconsistent starting

Asked by Oct 24, 2016 at 07:09 AM about the 1996 Ford Ranger XL Standard Cab 4WD SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I turn the key to the start position, it
sometimes it takes 3 or 4 tries for the engine to do
anything.  I'm thinking this is the starter, since
when the starter does try, it starts right up.  Am I
headed down the right road?
