Check your electrical connections at the battery and block before banging on anything! Starter is on the right side, even with the flywheel & edge of bellhousing, bolted to the block.

Starter will not start

If it needs tapping it needs replacing or refurbishing. The body of the starter is steel and the solenoid is steel both areas are good. BUT the solenoid has plastic ends where the wiring is attached, DO NOT HIT THAT! If there is no noise from the starter at all, it sounds like the solenoid is sticking. Tapping is only a quick fix, it will get to the stage where that won't work

My starter...can I tap it to start?

If you are trying to start the car, and the starter solenoid is hanging up, tapping on it sometimes frees it up enough to engage the starter motor to turn over the engine. This is a two person operation - one to turn the key, the other to tap on the starter/starter solenoid. The problem will only get worse - eventually, the solenoid or starter will fail completely. Best bet is to schedule a time to get it fixed instead of waiting for it to fail completely, likely at a bad time for you.

My car has trouble starting, Does make that clicking noise and I charged the battery. Seems like the cylinoid When I tap on it. after a bit, it starts. ????

A single click each time you turn the key to the crank position means starter, or solenoid. multiple clicks indicates low battery, or bad connection. I'm betting on the starter/solenoid since it will start when persuaded with impacts.

the starter solenoid is on top of the starter, the starter is on the bottom rear of engine, the problem u are discribing is a defective starter solenoid, with this type of starter I doubt that tapping on it will make the truck start, u will need to replace the starter solenoid.

I have a 1999 dodge avenger it want start

When you had the starter checked did you check the solenoid on the starter? If you can find a way to get to it, try using something hard to tap your solenoid and then try starting it. If that doesn't work try tapping the solenoid and starter while someone else turns the key. The starter may be good but the solenoid could be stuck inside. Hope this helps let me know how it goes. Good luck!
