Whoa! Before you beat the tar out of your starter, clean both battery clamps, removing the negative one first (always), the posts and also trace the cable down to your starter; loosen the terminal and retighten it and then follow the negative battery cable to where it is attached to chassis or engine block and clean that terminal too.
Finally; are you sure the battery still has ****** needed to deliver 120-200 amps?
Shotta may be right since the Bendix (it engages and disengages the starter gear/flywheel) could be full of gunk but I would check the simple (and more common) sources of trouble.

You need a new starter for sure. Good Luck

    That works only if the bendix is stuck it will work but not too hard you can break the starter housing. You can try but I really don't recommend that, but its your vehicle. However it does work temporarily. Good Luck

Before you go any further, have the battery checked. If there is an internal problem, it will create all kinds of problems like this.

I have 2000 gmc jimmy it wont start sometimes it has me clueless


It could be the ECU,but I am gonna put my money on the fuel pump and say its a fuel issue. Have you changed the fuel filter? the most common problem with GMC's is the air flow mass meter. Spray it with some air flow mass meter cleaner and see if that helps.

Someone will need to figure out if you are lacking spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors.
It could be a faulty relay or the check valve in the fuel pump.
