04 6 esn't always crank when key turned

Doesn't always do it but every now and than when the key is turned to start there seems to be a slight click (can't really where sounds come from because of the stupid warning chime) but the starter does not turn. After two or three turns it catches and starts fine. First thing I am going to try is swap the starter relay with a similar one.

are you sure the click isn't the starter spinning the gear into the flywheel and stopping?
