It seems the starter is playing up.First check if your battery is charged fully or try to jump start and see what happens.If the engine start then it's either you need a new battery or else you need a replacement alternator.Test using a voltmeter if the actual altenator is working.Finally the last option is the starter motor that needs changing or fixing...Hope this helps.

1st disconnect your battery
(Tools that I needed. 14mm socket for mounting bolts, 13 mm socket and a drop light. You need to jack up the front end pretty high both sides and put jack stands under each side. (extra precaution I put wood under the wheels because I don't like getting crushed. Slide under your car (bring a drop light) Look up and see your oil filter. Now look left and you will see the starter motor (oh yeah there is a pain in the as s bracket in the way) remove that bracket (14mm should be right) and then remove the bottom bolt of the starter (you may need a long socket extension here 8"?) The next set of bolts you have to get from up above that come from the other side. Get your light in there the one on the left side is easiest so get that last. The one on the right side will have a wiring harness running really close to it. Force your 14mm socket onto it with a 4 in extension. Back the bolt off till it spins a free but leave it in the hole. Remove the second one until you hear the unit fall. When putting the two bolts from the other side in, don't reef on them to get them super tight. Save your core so you can get some money back. Good repair manuel will cost 20 bucks, Haynes auto repair at your local auto parts store. good luck
