Check the gear around the "flex plate". That's the gear that the starter engages when you try to start the engine. You'll need to either pull the starter or the dust cover if that vehicle has one, so that you can inspect the gear. After you have access to the gear, slowly turn the engine so that you can inspect every tooth on the gear. If one or more are missing or severely worn, the starter gear will pull back and you'll get exactly what you're describing.

Disconnect the battery, negative first and then positive. Then disconnect the wires on the starter. Supporting the weight of the starter, undo the bolts that hold it and withdraw it from the housing. Put in the new starter and fit the bolts loosely. Tighten the bolts carefully, ensuring the starter is fitted properly into the housing. Reconnect the wires making sure they do not lie against any metalwork or get trapped where they might rub through. Finally reconnect the battery; positive first and then negative.
