SOURCE: starter motor wont turn over
Make sure car is cold. Battery must be fully charge. Make sure all battery connections and to starter and engine/body are clean and tight. Have someone cranks the car as you check for cranking power to the starter solenoid;it is the smaller wire on the solenoid which you may need to remove. Do this test at least ten times using a 12volts test light. If power on every crank, it definitely sound like starter acting up. Keep me informed.

when it won't start, use a test light on the solenoid wire (the small gauge wire) in the start position, you should have voltage. Also check your shift linkage to make sure the shift cable isn't keeping it from going into park position. try it in neutral position as well... that's a clue to a trans selector switch
