If I pull back slightly on the key(exact amount of tension)the car starts right up....any ideas?

Due to the specific condition described about the key position , I would be really surprised if it actually is the starter. PLEASE post the actual repair , when it's done. I'm personally leaning towards the ignition switch, but that doesn't mean much(other than that I have poor balance).
My mech. put in the starter and since I got the car back I've started it up about 6 times with no problems.He must have been right,but I still don't understand it. Glad it was the starter,much cheaper than an ign. switch.
Thanks again for the reply and happy new year.
That's what I thought.Acura says it's a bad starter.'It's @ another shop now,this mech. also says a bad starter.
New starter being put in now.I'll let u know how it works out.BTW 2nd shop charged 1/4 of the Acura estimate.
Thanks alot.
