Could be the gears in the motor.

I'd take a look at the window regulator, see if the tracks are dry. Is it stock with rivets or is there bolts holding it on? If there are bolts, someone might not have bolted it on in the right location. The original location of the regulator rivet holes has to be marked because if they are off, it will go down fine but up will be slow. If you're going to lube it up, ONLY use white lithium grease. Anything else and it's going to make it worse in the long run.

The gears in the motor are likely the indirect problem and the regulator being the direct problem. In other words, if the regulator is not remedied and the window motor is replaced, the same problem is likely to happen again in the future. That is, when the regulator is the culprit to begin with.

For sure regulator my drivers did the exact same thing. Goes up about halfway then starts popping( rounded out the gears in one spot.) had to help it catch the rest of the gears. I smashed my fingers everytime.

I just know when my driver window started acting up every once in awhile it turned out to be something with the motor. When it finally pooched I didn't have time to take it apart and fix/replace internals, I just replaced the whole motor. When it was acting up it was doing the same thing his is.

I would check the regulator or the switch solenoid

solenoid? Switch, leave it at that.

1)Remove the window motor, push and pull the window all the way up and down. Is there any mechanical binding? If yes, go to step 2.
2)Clean track of old white lithium grease and apply new WL grease on the tracks, window motor gear and everywhere there is movement. Is the reg still binding? If so, go to step 3:
3)Loosen window regulator bolts and shift the reg so the bolts are were the rivet outline used to be from the factory. Perform step 1 followed by step 3 until window glides up and down freely.

If the window still does not move freely with motor removed, check window regulator, door frame and upper window door frame guide for foreign material and damage.

When excessive mechanical window regulator resistance is not the problem, the only thing else I can think of at the moment is an underpowered supply of current to the window motor, creating an excessive electrical load to the window motor causing it to overheat.

To test this, perform a voltage drop across the load with a multimeter placing one lead on Y/R and one lead on R/Y.
The correct reading is seeing battery voltage across the load while operating the motor.

Note: Voltage drops can only be tested with the load in operation. If you are seeing anything less than battery voltage, you have a bad connection somewhere using up the valuable current needed to keep the motor happy and from burning up because it's forced to do more work in relation to how much power it's receiving.
