2 NEW STARTERS IN P/U TRUCK. NOW THE STARTER SPINS AND ENGAGES ONCE IN A WHILE. on 1998 Ford F-150

I CRANK IT, THE STARTER SPINS. DOES IS LIKE 5-6 TIMES THEN CATCHES AND TRIES TO START. THEN SPINS AGIAN AND THEN ENGAGES AND STARTS THE TRUCK. ASSUMING I AM MISSING TEETH ON FLYWHEEL (HOPEFULLY NOT). IT IS DRIVING ME NUTS BUT I KNOW I WILL BE STRANDED IF I DON'T FIX IT. PLUS DOES ANYONE HAVE AN EST. ON THE COST TO FIX IT IF SOMEONE ELSE DOES IT FOR ME. SEEMS TO BE MORE COMPLEX THAN WHAT I KNOW (NOT TOO MUCH).
