Question about 1993 GMC Sierra
Had the starter rebuilt about 24 mos ago, new bat checked the termial and tightned , still just a click after a while of turning the key the one click each time stops, checked oil ok, and cooleant in the radiator can you hael me,, 93 serria 6 cylinder 174.000 miles,
Check the ground to the engine, make sure the terminals are clean and tight on the starter and on the battery and have the battery tested.
24 months ago for a rebuilt starter is about the lifetime you could expect.
Did u change the battery cos' it was getting harder to turn the engine?
If the starter gets lazy (often a loss of windings due to varnish degradation) and hence a drop in power when activated. This wears batteries out and eventually the starter will fail. A lazy starter has that labored wuh wuh wuh sound instead of a faster regular sound
If you odnt find bad cables replace the starter.

Yes just because you have got a new battery does not mean that it will start your car. you need to have someone jump start you to charge the alternator back up. What is happening is that when you connected the battery to the car the alternator will draw the charge from the battery to the it and drain the battery. Have someone jump start you and drive the car for about 30 minuets to let it charge back up. After that you should be fine
