The starter has a solenoid which is a very heavy duty relay mounted on top of it, the electrical contacts get burned in that solenoid and don't make a good connection, you can repair the solenoid, but a rebuilt starter is the best choice, if you wish to pull the starter and fix the solenoid, the contacts in it can be replaced, you will need pull and get the model number off the starter and then contact Iowa motor parts at this link:

1997 voyager 3.3 when trying to start, it clicks several times before eventually turning over and running

You need to get your starter reconditioned. It sounds like the brushes is worn or you have a faulty soliniod

97 Olds Aurora hard starting in the morning. It cranks for 10-15 seconds then starts. After a few try's it will then start. Could this be a fuel regulator problem?

One item to include in your investigation is OCTANE level of your fuel. You MUST burn the LOWEST for yoru car. Higher octane is less explosive than lower (reverse from what you may think...)

Burning higher octane often causes starting complaints.....

Engine Not Responding/ Not getting power

Could be the other coil pack. Be sure to check and clear all codes stored.

Will not start

i suspect a faulty starter check for voltage output at the starter solenoid with a multimeter. or (shade tree) tap the starter with a hammer then attempt to start. if the vehicle starts after the tapping replace starter.
