1990 thunderbird sc when you turn the key the car just clicks

It just clicks, this indicates problem with battery or problem with starter.If starter is faulty then battery will just give power to starter and click.The engine will not start due to faulty starter.Most likely starter is faulty, but if both battery and starter checked out ok then there are other possibilities too.Click the link below:-- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

How do i replace the starter on my 1991 ford thunderbird 3.8L V6

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle with jackstands.
  3. Tag and disconnect the wiring at the starter.
  4. If necessary, turn the front wheels fully to the right. On some later models it will be necessary to remove the frame brace. On many models, it will be necessary to remove the two bolts retaining the steering idler arm to the frame to gain access to the starter.
  5. Unfasten the starter mounting bolts, then remove the starter from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the starter motor to the engine, then secure with the retaining bolts. Tighten the mounting bolts to 12-15 ft. lbs. (16-20 Nm) on starters with 3 mounting bolts and 15-20 ft. lbs. (20-27 Nm) on starters with 2 mounting bolts.
  2. If removed, tighten the idler arm retaining bolts to 28-35 ft. lbs. (38-47 Nm).
  3. Connect the starter cable to the motor. Tighten to 70-110 inch lbs. (8-12 Nm).
  4. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

I have put 5 starters on my car.They work good for 2 or 3 wks. then it's back to the click, click until it cranks.Any suggestions?

Sounds like your loosing power to the starter motor (big wire at starter), the small wire is good cause you hear it clicking, that's the solenoid, next time it clicks, need to check voltage at big wire on starter with test light, while some one holds key to start, if you loose voltage, check wire at both ends, battery and at starter.
